River Summary: The Whippany River is a 17.7-mile-long river located in Morris County, New Jersey. The river was once a vital source of power for local industries, including mills and factories. It has been designated a Category One trout production stream due to its excellent water quality and cold-water fishery. The river's headwaters begin in Mendham and it flows through several towns, including Morristown and Hanover. The river is home to several reservoirs and dams, including the Boonton Reservoir and the Lake Parsippany Dam. These reservoirs serve as sources of drinking water for local communities. The river is used for recreational activities like fishing, kayaking, and hiking, and is an important water source for agricultural irrigation.
