About the shenango river

The Shenango River is a tributary of the Allegheny River, running through northeastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania. It is approximately 82 miles long and has a drainage basin of 1,130 square miles. The river was once used for transportation and as a source of water for local industries. Today, it is a popular destination for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and hiking. There are several reservoirs and dams along the river, including the Shenango River Lake, Pymatuning Reservoir, and Shenango Dam. These structures provide flood control, water supply, and hydroelectric power. The river also serves as a vital source of water for agriculture in the surrounding areas. Despite past pollution from industries and agriculture, efforts have been made to improve water quality and restore the river's ecosystem.
