The Huangpu (pronunciation (help·info)), formerly romanized as Whangpoo, is a manmade 113-kilometer (70 mi) long river flowing north through Shanghai that was first excavated and created by Lord Chunshen, one of the Four Lords of the Warring States. It is the last significant tributary of the Yangtze before the Yangtze empties into the East China Sea. The Bund and Lujiazui are located along the Huangpu River.
The Huangpu is the largest river in central Shanghai, with Suzhou Creek being its major tributary. It is on average 400 metres (1,312 feet) wide and 9 metres (30 feet) deep. It divides the city into two regions: Puxi ("west of Huangpu"), the traditional city centre, and Pudong ("east of Huangpu").

In March 2013, some 16,000 pig carcasses were found floating in the Huangpu River in Shanghai. Some of the pigs carried ear tags saying they were from Jiaxing, so that city in Zhejiang may be the source; One news agency indicates that dead pigs are often dumped into rivers in China to avoid the disposal cost.  However local farmers deny the dumping allegation.
