Big Sioux River

Big Sioux River

      river rising in Grant county, north of Watertown, S.D., U.S. It flows south and southeast past Sioux Falls, where its 20-foot (6-metre) drop is utilized by a hydroelectric power station, and enters the Missouri River near Sioux City, Iowa, after a course of 420 miles (676 km). Between Sioux Falls and Sioux City the river forms the boundary for about 80 miles (129 km) between Iowa and South Dakota and between the corn- (maize-) growing region to the east and the cattle-raising region to the west. It is not navigable. Its main tributary is the Rock River.
