River Summary: The Juniata River is a 104-mile-long tributary of the Susquehanna River, located in central Pennsylvania. The river has played a significant role in the region's history, serving as a transportation route for Native Americans and early settlers. The river's hydrology has been altered by several dams, including Raystown Lake, which was created in 1973 by the construction of the Raystown Dam. The lake is a popular destination for boating, fishing, and camping. The river and its tributaries also provide water for agriculture and industry, supporting the region's economy. However, the river has faced challenges such as pollution, sedimentation, and damming, requiring ongoing efforts to protect its health and biodiversity. Despite these challenges, the Juniata River remains an important natural and cultural resource in central Pennsylvania.
