The river is home to several reservoirs, including the Fitchburg Reservoir and the Lancaster Reservoir, which provide drinking water to surrounding communities. Recreational activities on the river include fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Agriculture along the river includes dairy farms and apple orchards.
