The Maumee River (pronounced //) (Shawnee: Hotaawathiipi; Miami-Illinois: Taawaawa siipiiwi) is a river running from northeastern Indiana into northwestern Ohio and Lake Erie in the United States. The city of Toledo is located at the mouth of the Maumee.
It is the largest watershed of any of the rivers feeding the Great Lakes, and supplies five percent of Lake Erie’s water.
