Manville Dam - June 12th

Would have liked to join Jeff on the Deerfield today, but it wasn't in the cards. Instead, I paddled down at the Manville Dam for a couple of hours. This dam originally provided power for the huge Manville Mill which was destroyed by fire in the 1950's. At one time, the Manville Mill was one of the largest mill complexes on the Blackstone River employing over 5,000 workers.  Woonsocket gage was about 2', 460 cfs. Just about right.
