About the christina river
The Christina River is a tributary of the Delaware River in Delaware, with a length of approximately 35 miles. It was named after Queen Christina of Sweden and was first explored by Dutch navigator Cornelius May in 1613. The river has been used for transportation, industry, and recreation. Hydrologically, the Christina River watershed covers 565 square miles and is made up of several major tributaries. It is regulated by two dams, the Chambers Works Dam and the Cooch's Bridge Dam. The river is used for recreational activities, such as fishing and boating, and also provides water for agricultural purposes. In recent years, efforts have been made to improve the water quality in the Christina River, which has suffered from pollution and urbanization.
