The longest un-dammed river in the contiguous USA is the Yellowstone River; it is 692 miles long. Besides the USA rivers, the USA river map also shows the various lakes, streams and other water bodies in the USA. For certain cities like New Orleans, river basins usher in growth and prosperity for the city and its people.
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. The longest river in the USA is the Missouri River; it is a tributary of the Mississippi River and is 2,540 miles long. The lake system of the US comprises Great Lakes of Lake Superior, Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Ontario and Lake Michigan, the first four of which are shared with Canada. 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.
