The Metedeconk River /məˈtiːdəkʌŋk/ of southeastern New Jersey flows from its North Branch (20 miles/32 km long) and its South Branch (15 miles/24 km long) to their confluence at Forge Pond, where the river then widens (up to just over 1 mile/1.6 km) and flows southeast for 6 miles/9.7 km into the Barnegat Bay. It contains both fresh and salt-water portions.
Like many area streets, waterways and towns, Metedeconk is the original word or phrase used by the pre-European peoples of the area, the Lenape.
