River Summary: The Susquehanna River, located in the northeastern United States, stretches for 444 miles from its source in upstate New York to the Chesapeake Bay. It has played a significant role in the history of the region, serving as a transportation route for Native Americans and early settlers. The river's hydrology is characterized by high flow variability, with floods and droughts being common. The river is home to several reservoirs and dams, including the Conowingo Dam and the Safe Harbor Dam, both of which generate hydroelectric power. Recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping are popular along the river, and it also supports agriculture by providing irrigation for crops. However, pollution from agricultural runoff and other sources has impacted the river's water quality and ecosystem.
