The Chemung River is a 45-mile-long tributary of the Susquehanna River in New York and Pennsylvania. It has served as an important transportation route for Native American tribes and later, European settlers. The river flows through the cities of Elmira and Corning, and is used for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and kayaking. The river's watershed covers 2,600 square miles and includes several reservoirs and dams, including the Chemung River Dam and the Harris Hill Dam. These structures help regulate the river's flow and provide water for agricultural purposes. In recent years, the Chemung River has seen improvements in water quality and wildlife habitat due to conservation efforts by local organizations.
