Colville River

© noheadimg

The Colville River is about 600 km (375 miles) long. It rises in northwestern Alaska, in the De Long Mountains, which are part of the Brooks Range. The river flows first east and then north across the tundra to the Arctic Ocean. All of its major tributaries rise on the north slope of the Brooks Range. The Colville River is frozen for most of the year. In spring, when ice on its upper course melts, the Colville River causes floods each year. The largest town on the river's banks is Umiat. Coal, oil and natural gas are found in the valley.
