 Articles - Whitewater   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Rivers in the eastern section of the United States are usually considered "technical," which means that due to lesser water volume, rafters and kayakers must often direct their craft through boulder-strewn sections of river, through narrow channels and shoals.
Western rafters also navigate many small, low volume rivers, some with much steeper descents than eastern rivers; however, since the mountains are newer in the west, the hazard from undercut rocks, a problem in the east, is replaced by more frequent log jams precipitated by logging activities near the rivers.
Rivers are almost all private and access must be agreed with all of the riparian owners (the owners of the land either side of the river) and the owners of the fishing rights, otherwise canoeing or kayaking there is trespass (although landowners can do little other than tell trespassers to leave their property).

 Mon, Allegheny put on group's list of 10 most endangered rivers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
"To make the list there has to be an imminent threat, and that's there because of the additional acid mine drainage threatening to break out of all those abandoned mines," said Sara Nicholas, director of American Rivers' mid-Atlantic field office in Harrisburg.
According to the group's endangered rivers report, scheduled for release today, failure to reauthorize the federal trust fund, which is financed by royalties paid by mining companies, will short-circuit mine drainage treatment efforts and increase the amount of pollution reaching the two rivers from thousands of abandoned mines.
Nicholas said the rivers were nominated and listed together at No. 5 on the list of endangered rivers because they are "mirror images" of the abandoned mine drainage threat.

 Rivers That Flow North   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
And even in an era where traveling by river is uncommon we speak of "downriver" and "upriver", and we know that "upriver" (or "up the creek") means against the current, while downriver, with the current, is much easier going.
For a good example of a large, famous river that loops around in all sorts of directions, look closely at a map of the Ohio River, which flows mainly west-southwest for 981 miles from Pittsburgh until it meets the Mississippi at Cairo, Illinois.
Other north-flowing rivers in that area are the Unare and Cuyuni, the Magdalena in Colombia, the Berbice and Essequibo rivers in Guyana, the Corantyne or Corantin on the border between Guyana and Suriname, the Mana in French Guyana.
