About the androscoggin river
The Androscoggin River runs through New Hampshire and Maine, covering a length of 178 miles. It was once one of the most polluted rivers in the country due to the paper mills that lined its banks, but since the 1970s, extensive cleanup efforts have improved the water quality. The river's hydrology is influenced by several dams, including the Livermore Falls Dam, the Gulf Island Dam, and the Berlin Dam, which provide hydropower and flood control. The river also has several reservoirs, including the Umbagog Lake, the Richardson Lake, and the Aziscohos Lake. Recreational activities such as fishing, hiking, and camping are popular along the river, and the river also supports agricultural activities like irrigation and farming.
