Special Containment Procedures: Applied Task Force Hudson-5 ("Voyageurs") has been formed to manage SCP-XXXX containment operations. This task force operates from the research vessel SCPF Wayfinder and the hopper barge SCPF Nashville, which maintain a perimeter around the mouth of SCP-XXXX and redirect any vessels attempting to access it.

Under the Yezhov Protocol, historical accounts of SCP-XXXX have either been confiscated by the Foundation or discredited in the public sphere by the Misinformation Department (see Document M.XXXX-21). Relevant documents selected by the HRC are collected in Addendum XXXX.1 below.

Long-term regulation procedures are currently being considered by the Site-44 Department of Containment Operations.


Description: SCP-XXXX is an anomalous waterway that manifests at the mouth of the Androscoggin River in Topsham, Maine. Measured at 4770 kilometers in length, SCP-XXXX extends across North America from Merrymeeting Bay, where it connects to the Atlantic Ocean, to an outlet near Vancouver, British Columbia, where it connects to the Pacific Ocean via the Strait of Georgia. Due to the obvious topographical anomaly this presents, it is believed that SCP-XXXX exists within a closed 3-manifold with a single 2-boundary, a structure with a self-contained interior that can only be entered through a single point in normal space.1


Addendum XXXX.1 - Historical Information

Comparison of the estimated SCP-XXXX route with a historical account of the "Strait of Anián".

SCP-XXXX is known to have existed since at least the mid- to late-18th century. It is believed to have been first discovered by American explorer Meriwether Lewis during an unsanctioned expedition in 1809.

Before Lewis could disseminate information regarding the anomaly, he was assassinated by the Cliveden Society2 All relevant documents are in Foundation possession, and the public historical consensus of Lewis's suicide has been maintained.

SCP-XXXX came under Foundation jurisdiction in 1963
