About the moshassuck river
The Moshassuck River is a 8.9-mile long waterway located in Rhode Island, USA. Historically, the river was an important source of power for mills and factories during the industrial revolution. Today, the river is a popular spot for fishing and kayaking, and is also used for irrigation for nearby farmland. The hydrology of the river has been significantly modified by the construction of dams and reservoirs, including the Woonasquatucket Reservoir and the Olney Pond Dam. The river flows through several urban and suburban areas before emptying into the Providence River. Despite its urban location, efforts have been made to improve water quality and restore the natural habitat of the river through initiatives such as stormwater management and the removal of invasive species.
