River Summary: The Leaf River is a river in Mississippi that is approximately 180 miles long. It has historically been used for transportation of goods and supplies, and played a key role in the Civil War. Today, it serves as a source of water for agricultural irrigation, and supports a variety of recreational activities such as boating, fishing, and hiking. The river system includes several major reservoirs and dams, including the Ross Barnett Reservoir and the Okatibbee Reservoir. These structures have been constructed to regulate the river's flow, prevent flooding, and provide hydroelectric power. Despite its importance, the Leaf River faces several challenges, including pollution and habitat destruction.
