Pawcatuck River

User Rating: / 4
PoorBest 

The name Pawcatuck River means “the clear divided stream” when translated into the Pequot language.  The Pawcatuck River separates Connecticut from Rhode Island which symbolizes how the river got its name. The river is 34 miles long and contains as many as 8 dams. Since the 1600’s the Pawcatuck River has supplied the local towns with industrial machinery such as building ships and textile mills. With the Industrial Revolution arise in the United States the water quality of the Pawcatuck River declined and extensive work was done to restore the river back to its original qualities.  The river is now the place for gathering and seasonal sports such as water skiing, kayaking, fishing and much more.
