Conewango Creek is a 71-mile-long (114 km)[1] tributary of the Allegheny River in Pennsylvania and western New York in the United States.[2]

The creek's drainage covers much of southeastern Chautauqua County, New York and southwestern Cattaraugus County, New York. The creek's most notable tributary is the Chadakoin River, which supplies the creek water from Chautauqua Lake. Its watershed is bounded by the Chautauqua Ridge, a continental divide.

Course[edit]

Conewango creek meets Allegheny River; in Warren, PA.

Conewango Creek joins the Allegheny River at the city of Warren, Pennsylvania.

River modifications[edit]

On September 26, 2009 an obsolete Civil War-era low head dam within the city of Warren on the Conewango Creek was removed. Removal of this dam will allow fish migration from the Allegheny River throughout the upper reaches of the Conewango Creek drainage basin. [3]
