River Summary: The Nottoway River is a 75-mile-long river that flows through southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. It was named after the Native American tribe that inhabited the area before European settlement. The river has been an important waterway for transportation and agriculture throughout history, with early settlers using it to transport tobacco and other crops to markets. The hydrology of the river is influenced by the surrounding land use, including agricultural and timber production, and it is also home to several reservoirs and dams, including the Lake Gaston Dam, which is used for hydroelectric power generation. The Nottoway River is popular for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and camping, and it is also used for agricultural irrigation.
