Dan River

Description. Lang: en

The Dan River flows 214 miles (344 km) in the U.S. states of North Carolina and Virginia.  It rises in Patrick County, Virginia, and crosses the state border into Stokes County, North Carolina.  It then flows into Rockingham County.  From there it back into Virginia through only Pittsylvania County before reentering North Carolina near the border between Caswell County and Rockingham County.  It flows into northern Caswell County and then back into southern Virginia (briefly Pittsylvania County, then into Halifax County) and finally into Kerr Reservoir on the Roanoke River.
The name of the river was first recorded by William Byrd II in 1728, during an expedition to survey the Virginia border, though Byrd did not explain the reason for the name.  A variant name is "South Branch Roanoke River".In 2014, in an event called the 2014 Dan River coal ash spill a large amount of coal ash spilled into the river, prompting a cleanup process costing an estimated $300 million.Dan River is also the name of the southeastern political district of Pittsylvania County, Virginia, where a small section of the river serves as the boundary between Pittsylvania County and the City of Danville.
