The Poudre River meets the South Platte River, one of two tributaries of the Platte River, at its confluence just east of Greeley, Colorado. As the Poudre River flows into the South Platte River, water continues its flow towards Nebraska and is a principal source of water for eastern Colorado. The South Platte was originally called Niinéniiniicíihéhe by the native Arapaho people who lived on its banks. The early Spanish explorers called it the Rio Chato (calm river).
