I didn’t expect there to be much flow through the spillway after so many days of no rain but the water levels in the reservoir and watershed are high enough that there was an overflow.
The reservoir was created by damming up the Swift River’s tributaries of rivers and brooks. As the water leaves through the spillway it returns to the Swift River on its way to joining the Ware River which joins the Chicopee River before finally entering the Connecticut River and eventually the Atlantic Ocean at the Connecticut coast.
Originally I was going to post a rock abstract, but something about it seemed familiar and it turned out I had made the exact same composition last year and posted it. If it was Flashback Friday I might have gone ahead. I wanted to share it for Linda Grashoff but will just link it so if she sees this she or anyone interested can click here.
