About the cuivre river

The Cuivre River is a 83-mile-long river in eastern Missouri that flows through Lincoln, St. Charles, and Warren counties. It is a tributary of the Mississippi River and was named by French explorers, meaning "copper river." The river has a rich history, having been used by Native American tribes for trade and transportation. Today, the Cuivre River is primarily used for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming. The river also has several reservoirs and dams, including the Indian Camp Creek Reservoir, which is used for municipal water supply and recreation, and the Peruque Creek Reservoir, which is used for flood control and recreation. The Cuivre River provides agricultural benefits as well, with its fertile floodplain supporting crops and livestock.
