About the huron river

The Huron River is a 130-mile-long river in southeastern Michigan. It was named after the Huron tribe who once inhabited the area. The river flows through several cities, including Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Flat Rock. The Huron River's hydrology is primarily influenced by rainfall and snowmelt, with its flow regulated by three dams: Barton, Argo, and Geddes. The river serves as a source of drinking water for several communities and provides recreational opportunities for fishing, boating, and swimming. The Huron River also supports agriculture, with several farms located along its banks, producing crops such as soybeans, corn, and wheat. The river has a rich history, with Native Americans using it as a transportation and trading route and later serving as a source of power for mills and factories.
