Anón River[note a] (Spanish: Río Anón) is a river in the municipality of Ponce, Puerto Rico.[5] It is located in the northeastern area of the municipality. Río Anón is one of the 14 rivers in the municipality and, at 1,060 feet (320 m), it is also the third with the highest river mouth location, after Río Prieto and Río Blanco, both of which have their mouths at 1,381 feet (421 m).[6] Río Anón is a tributary of Río Inabón. It has a length of approximately 4 kilometers (2.5 mi) and generally runs south. It has both its origin and its mouth in Barrio Anón.

Origin and course[edit]

The river originates in the mountains of the Toro Negro State Forest,[7] in barrio Anón in Ponce,[8] and cuts through the center of Barrio Anón.[9] It then feeds into Río Inabón just south of the intersection of PR-511 and PR-517 (also called Camino Jurutungo) in central Barrio Anón. Río Anón has both its origin and its mouth in barrio Anón.[10]

Río Inabón[edit]

Río Anón becomes Río Inabón at the point just south of the intersections of PR-511 and PR-517. After this point, Río Inabón winds its way through the hills paralleling PR-511 through barrios Anón and Real. It follows by the eastern edge of barrio Coto Laurel, and then forms the border between barrios Vayas and Capitanejo before it empties into the Caribbean Sea as Río Inabón.[11]

Notes[edit]

1.^ The name of this river is "Río Anón". Unfortunately, one very reliable source, the USGS, misspelled it as "Río Añon". Such name is incorrect and should be ignored. The correct name is "Río Anón".
