About the buckhannon river
The Buckhannon River is a 45-mile-long tributary of the Monongahela River in West Virginia. The river was historically used for transportation and logging, and is now popular for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and swimming. The Buckhannon River is fed by numerous smaller streams and creeks and has two major reservoirs, Stonecoal Lake and Buckhannon River Lake, which provide water for drinking, irrigation, and flood control. The river's hydrology has been impacted by coal mining and other industries, leading to pollution concerns. The Buckhannon River is also used for agriculture, with crops such as corn, hay, and soybeans grown in the surrounding areas. Despite these challenges, efforts are being made to protect and restore the Buckhannon River's ecological health and recreational opportunities.
