About the ottauquechee river

The Ottauquechee River is a 41.4-mile-long tributary of the Connecticut River, located in Vermont's Windsor County. The river's name is derived from the Abenaki word meaning "place of swift water." Historically, the river played a significant role in the area's development, powering mills and factories during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The river is fed by several smaller streams and flows through several towns, including Woodstock and Quechee. The river's flow is regulated by several dams, including the Taftsville Dam and the Dewey Mills Dam. The Ottauquechee is a popular spot for recreational activities, including fishing, kayaking, and swimming, as well as agricultural use, with farms and orchards lining its banks.
