About the lackawaxen river
The Lackawaxen River is a tributary of the Delaware River, located in northeast Pennsylvania. The river is approximately 31 miles long and played a significant role in the development of the region during the 18th and 19th centuries, as it was used for transportation of goods and facilitated the growth of industry. Today, the river is primarily used for recreational activities, such as fishing, kayaking, and rafting. There are several reservoirs and dams along the river, including the Prompton Dam and the Lake Wallenpaupack Dam, which provide hydroelectric power and drinking water to the region. Additionally, the river supports agricultural uses, as it provides irrigation water for nearby farms. Despite being heavily utilized, efforts are being made to ensure the preservation of the natural beauty and ecological health of the Lackawaxen River.
