On April 17th, American Rivers announced its annual list of America’s Most Endangered Rivers.
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. This year, American Rivers named the Colorado River the Most Endangered River in the country.


Department of the Interior (DOI) announced this week the release of a four-year study, authorized by Congress and jointly developed by DOI and the seven Colorado River Basin states, that projects water supply and demand imbalances throughout the Colorado River Basin and adjacent areas over the next 50 years.
Rivers provide drinking water, irrigation water, transportation, electrical power, drainage, food, and recreation.
The longest river in the USA is the Missouri River; it is a tributary of the Mississippi River and is 2,540 miles long. While some of the USA rivers and lakes serve as vital waterways for inland navigation others are useful sources of irrigation and power generation.


For certain cities like New Orleans, river basins usher in growth and prosperity for the city and its people.
