About the missisquoi river

The Missisquoi River is a 80-mile-long tributary of Lake Champlain that flows through Vermont and Quebec. It was a crucial trade and transportation route for Native American tribes and early European settlers. The river has a hydrological history of flooding and ice jams, which led to the construction of several reservoirs and dams, including the Gorge Dam and Enosburg Falls Dam. These dams have helped to regulate water flow, prevent flooding, and generate hydroelectric power. The river is used for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and swimming. It also supports agriculture, with farms located along its banks using its water for irrigation. The Missisquoi River is an important part of Vermont's history and provides valuable resources to the surrounding communities.
