    a shipyard is situated - how to say it

    Hello all users!

    I would like to say that a shipyard is situated near the place where a river flows into a sea. May I say that a shipyard is situated near the place where a river empties its water(s) into a sea or should I say that a shipyard is situated at the very mouth of a river?

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    At the mouth of the river is good. Adding very​ makes the language rather flowery.
