The Cataraqui River forms the lower portion of the Rideau Canal and drains into Lake Ontario at Kingston, Ontario. It is also known as the Great Cataraqui River  to distinguish it from the smaller Little Cataraqui Creek, 4.5 km to the west. The Cataraqui River system was extensively modified during the construction of the canal: swamps were turned into lakes and new marshes were formed.
