The João Leite River (Rio João Leite, in Portuguese) is a tributary of the Paranaíba River, which flows into the São Francisco River. It originates in the Serra Dourada Mountains and runs for approximately 260 kilometers through the municipalities of Goiás, Anápolis, Goianira, and others.
The João Leite River is an important source of water for the region, and it also plays a significant role in the local economy, particularly in agriculture and cattle ranching. The river is also used for recreation, including fishing and boating, and it is a popular destination for tourists who visit the area.
The forests located on the banks of rivers are essential for preserving water quality. In these areas, called riparian forest, or Permanent Preservation Areas (APP), the tree roots prevent landslides on the slopes, and the leaves accumulated in the soil work as a filter that protects the river from pesticides, fertilisers, and all kinds of dirt.
Ribeirão João Leite is the main source of water supply in the city of Goiânia, with its 1.5 million people. A few kilometres after entering the urban area, it flows into the Meia Ponte River, which in turn receives the city's sewage.
