List of rivers of Ponce, Puerto Rico


This list of rivers of Ponce consists of the 14 rivers in the municipality of Ponce, Puerto Rico. Rivers that either originate in the municipality or that run the bulk of their course through said municipality are listed. Except for two rivers, Río Portugués and Río Jacaguas, all other rivers originate and terminate within the boundaries of the municipality of Ponce. This list does not include quebradas (English: brooks). Only streams recognized as "rivers" by the United States Geological Survey and the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources are included here.

All the rivers in the municipality of Ponce run into one of four river basins that then empty into the Caribbean Sea. These four river basins are: Río Matilde, Río Bucaná, Río Inabón, and Río Jacaguas.

Río Pastillo and Río Canas merge to form Río Matilde. Río Blanco, Río Prieto, Río San Patricio, Río Bayagán, Río Cerrillos, Río Chiquito, and Río Portugués all run in one manner or other into Río Bucaná. Río Anon feeds into Río Inabón (Río Guayo also feeds into Río Inabón, but Río Guayo is not located in the municipality of Ponce). Río Jacaguas is actually shared between the municipalities of Ponce and Juana Díaz, as it forms the boundary between the two municipalities. Various rivers feed into Río Jacaguas, but none of them are located within the municipality of Ponce.

Cerrillos River (Spanish: Río Cerrillos) is a river in the municipality of Ponce, Puerto Rico. Río Cerrillos has its origin in barrio Anón and runs south until it feeds into Bucaná River. Río Cerrillos is commonly known by the locals as Maragüez River, because most of its course runs through Barrio Maragüez. This river is one of the 14 rivers in the municipality. The river has a discharge of 24,000 cubic feet per second, making it the second most affluent river in the municipality after Río Jacaguas.

From its origin about 1 kilometer south of the intersection of PR-139 and PR-143, Río Cerrillos runs south for 1.8 kilometers where it is fed by Río Prieto west of PR-139. From this point on, Rio Cerrillos runs parallel to PR-139 for 2 kilometers in barrio Anón before reaching barrio Maraguez. Continuing on its southernly course for about 1.2 kilometers, Río Cerrillos is fed by Río San Patricio. Five kilometers further downstream Río Cerrillos forms Lake Cerrillos, as a result of its dam. Flowing out of the Cerrillos dam, Río Cerrillos runs south for 1 kilometer until it enters barrios Machuelo Arriba and barrio Cerrillos, being the boundary between the two barrios. The river continues its southern course parallel to PR-139 for 5 kilometers until it reaches PR-5139. In another kilometer downstream it is fed by Quebrada Ausubo, and another kilometer further south it is fed by Río Bayagán. At this point it feeds into Río Bucaná where it terminates.

Chiquito River (Spanish: Río Chiquito) is a river in the municipality of Ponce, Puerto Rico. This river feeds into Río Portugues in the sector called Parras. It has its origin in the mountains west of Montes Llanos. Chiquito River is fed by Quebrada del Pastillo. This river is one of the 14 rivers in the municipality of Ponce.

Chiquito River has its origin in barrio Montes Llanos at an altitude of 390 meters (1,170 feet). It forms in the area north of Camino Paseo del Río and west of Camino Paseo Panorámico II, in south central Montes Llanos, about half kilometer west of PR-505, and approximately 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) north of the northern terminus of PR-504.

Chiquito River runs from south central barrio Montes Llanos into north central barrio Portugues dividing barrio Portugues lengthwise from north to south into essentially two equal halves. It crosses several times the east-to-west Camino La Cuchilla Road as it continues southward. After this, the river is found next to the western edge of PR-588, also known as Camino Río Chiquito, until PR-588 comes to its southern terminus where it meets PR-504. From this point onward Río Chiquito runs southward along the western edge of PR-504 for approximately 600 meters until it crosses the PR-504. Running southward along the eastern edge of PR-504 for about one kilometer, Río Chiquito crosses PR-504 again to join Río Portugues some 300 meters after this point, where it ends. This southern terminus for the river occurs 250 feet north of PR-10, 250 feet east of PR-503, and 250 feet west of PR-504. At its mouth Chiquito River has an elevation of 98 feet.
