The American River (Río de los Americanos during the Mexican-ruled period before 1846) is a 119 mile long California river which runs from the Sierra Nevada mountain range to its confluence with the Sacramento River in the San Joaquin Valley. It eventually empties into the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean at San Francisco, California. The American River flows entirely within California. The American River is part of a unique, California Mediterranean ecosystem that holds an immense amount of fish and wildlife. The American River has high water quality and is the main source of drinking water for Sacramento. The river is fed by the melting snowpack of the Sierra Nevada and its many headwaters and tributaries. There are three main sections of the river; the North, Middle, and South Fork.
