Coordinates: 44°21′58″N 70°10′0″W / 44.36611°N 70.16667°W / 44.36611; -70.16667 The Dead River is a tributary of the Androscoggin River in western Maine in the United States. The river flows from Androscoggin Lake, northwest through the town of Leeds 7 miles (11 km)[1] to the Androscoggin. This sluggish river is the outlet of a chain of ponds, of which Androscoggin Pond is the largest and last. The river has the rare power of running either way at different times. Upon a sudden rise of the Androscoggin River, the flow sets back the current of Dead River into the pond. It sometimes flows into the pond for three or four days.[citation needed]
