The longest un-dammed river in the contiguous USA is the Yellowstone River; it is 692 miles long.
Rivers provide drinking water, irrigation water, transportation, electrical power, drainage, food, and recreation.
While some of the USA rivers and lakes serve as vital waterways for inland navigation others are useful sources of irrigation and power generation. Besides the USA rivers, the USA river map also shows the various lakes, streams and other water bodies in the USA.

The longest river in the USA is the Missouri River; it is a tributary of the Mississippi River and is 2,540 miles long.
For certain cities like New Orleans, river basins usher in growth and prosperity for the city and its people. Of the five Great Lakes, only Lake Michigan falls entirely within the territory of the United States with the remaining four being shared with Canada. The whole drainage topography of the USA may be divided into two main subsystems, namely the Eastern systems and the Pacific systems.
