Black River


Black River

river, Arkansas and Missouri, United States
      river in southeastern Missouri and eastern Arkansas, U.S., rising in the Ozark Mountains in Reynolds county, Mo. It flows southeasterly to Poplar Bluff, Mo., and then continues southwest to enter the White River near Newport, Ark., after a course of 280 miles (450 km). Limited navigation is possible for shallow-draft vessels in the lower 15 miles (25 km) of its course. Its main tributary is the Current River, which it receives near Pocahontas, Ark. Clearwater Dam, near Piedmont, Mo., was completed in 1948 on the Black River as a major flood-control project.

river, Asia
Vietnamese  Song Da,  Chinese  Li-hsien Chiang, 

      one of the chief tributaries of the Red River (Song Hong) in southeastern Asia. Nearly 500 miles (800 km) long, the river rises in central Yunnan province in southwestern China and flows southeastward into northwestern Vietnam on a course parallel to the Red River. Near the city of Hoa Binh, 37 miles (60 km) southwest of Hanoi, the Black River is dammed to form a reservoir that is the largest in Vietnam. The Hoa Binh Dam went into operation in 1988, though work on its hydroelectric generating station was not completed until 1994. The dam's 1,920-megawatt power plant generates a significant portion of Vietnam's total electricity requirement. After passing the dam, the Black River turns sharply north and unites with the Red River about 35 miles (55 km) northwest of Hanoi.
