The Neponset River is a river that flows into Boston Harbor and spans over 29 miles. The river has a rich history, with the native Massachusett tribe using the river for fishing and transportation. Today, the river has several hydroelectric dams and reservoirs, including the Fowl Meadow Reservoir and the Norwood Reservoir. The river is also used for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and boating. The Neponset River Watershed Association works to protect and restore the river's ecological health and maintain water quality. The river has also been utilized for agricultural purposes, with farms located along its banks in the past. Despite some challenges with pollution and erosion, the Neponset River continues to serve as an important natural resource for the surrounding communities.
