About The Josias & Ogunquit Rivers

The Josias River
The Josias River is located in the towns of York and Ogunquit. Clay Hill Road follows the Josias River and crosses many of its tributaries before the river passes under I-95. The river flows into Perkins Cove in the town of Ogunquit before emptying into the Gulf of Maine. For more information on the Cape Neddick River watershed please visit the WNERR SWIM website.

New Culverts In Place On Josias River
The culverts pictured here were replaced after the Mother's Day Storm of 2006 washed these two crossings out (see articles below). The State Planning Office encouraged York to replace the washed-out steel pipe culverts with larger passageways made of concrete and with a natural stone or gravel bottom. Along with less likelihood of being washed out so easily, unlike standard steel culverts, these new culverts will not block fish, as well as amphibians and mammals, from moving up and down streams.

The Ogunquit River
Located in the towns of South Berwick, York and Ogunquit, the Ogunquit River has its source in the Third Hill area of Mount Agamenticus. The river widens at its mouth behind Ogunquit and Moody Beaches before flowing into the Gulf of Maine. For more information on the Cape Neddick River watershed please visit the WNERR SWIM website.
