Androscoggin

(ăndrəskŏg`ĭn), river, c.175 mi (280 km) long, rising in NE N.H., flowing south and east to enter the Atlantic Ocean at Bath, Maine. Hydroelectric plants, using the river's steep gradient, supply power to nearby towns. The area is a major pulp and paper producer; the practice of floating logs downstream has hindered the river's further development for power.
