St. Croix River, Maine
This river forms the boundary line between the United States and the British Province of New Brunswick, from the ocean to Grand Lake. It is sometimes called Passamaquoddy, Schoodic, and Cheputnetecook. This river rises in Grand Lake and passes to the ocean in a S.E. course. The distances on this important river are as follows: from Eastport to Calais, at the head of navigation, is 28 miles: from Calais to the mouth of Schoodic river, 21 miles: and from thence to Grand Lake is 33 miles: total distance from Eastport to Grand Lake, 82 miles. There are many elevations in this river, and consequently many falls and rapids, producing a great hydraulic power. The mouth of the western branch of the St. Croix, or Schoodic river, is 166 feet above tide water, at Calais; and the whole fall from Grand Lake to sea level is 444 feet.
