About the blackstone river


The Blackstone River is a waterway in the northeastern United States, stretching 48 miles from Worcester, Mass. to Providence, R.I. It is rich in history, as it played a vital role in the Industrial Revolution and was once known as the "hardest working river in America." The river flows through several cities and towns, including Worcester, Millbury, Sutton, Grafton, Northbridge, Uxbridge, and Woonsocket. Today, the Blackstone River is an important source of drinking water for local communities and supports recreational activities such as fishing and kayaking. The river is also home to several reservoirs and dams, including the Wallum Lake Reservoir, which provides water to the city of Providence, and the Blackstone River Dam, which helps to regulate water flow and prevent flooding. In addition, the Blackstone River Valley is home to many farms and agricultural operations, which rely on the river's water for irrigation.
