River Summary: The Sandusky River is a river in northwestern Ohio that flows for 133 miles before emptying into Lake Erie. Historically, the river has played an important role in transportation and industry, particularly during the 19th century when it was used to transport logging and agricultural products. Today, the river is primarily used for recreation, including fishing and boating. The river's hydrology is impacted by several reservoirs and dams, including the Tiffin and Ballville dams. These dams help to regulate water flow and prevent flooding. The river also serves as a source of irrigation for nearby agricultural land. Despite pollution concerns in the past, the Sandusky River has seen improvements in water quality and continues to be an important resource for the region.
