Gualeguay River

The Gualeguay River is one of the major rivers of the Mesopotamic province of Entre Rios, Argentina. It is born in the north of the province, in the region between the cities of Federacion and San Jose de Feliciano, and meanders in a general south-southwestward direction across the center of the province for about 350375 km, receiving a large number of tributary streams. It passes by the cities of Villaguay, Rosario del Tala and Gualeguay, and finally empties into the Parana Pavon/Parana Ibicuy branches of the Parana River Delta.

The Gualeguay's drainage basin covers an area of 22,716 km (about one third of the total area of the province), along a depressed area between the systems of low hills of the west (Cuchilla de Montiel) and east (Cuchilla Grande) of Entre Rios. Measurements taken in 19641968 place its average flow at 210 m/s.
