River Description


 

 

 

 

10/30/03 - 1' on the gauge under the rt. 103 bridge in Cuttingsville, river right. (estimated; gauge goes from 4' - 8'). Another "gauge" is the high RR trestle north of E. Wallingford, river left....water was washing over the footing, but not quite up to the stonework. I ran the 4 miles from just upstream of E. Wallingford down to the bridge a mile downstream of Cuttingsville. First 3 miles were continuous class 2 mixed with lots of bouldery, technical class 3 rapids. Last mile was mostly class 2. The biggest drop is probably the one under the high trestle. Good surfing at the ledges a couple hundred yards above the Cuttingsville bridge. This was good level, but I wouldn't want to run it much lower....it got boney anywhere the riverbed widened out. Another 6" of water would be perfect.

AW and its partners have been working to restore these releases.

Bellows Falls (VT) Flow Study Reveals Hidden Whitewater

6/2/2015
Robert Nasdor

A hardy group of northeast boaters climbed into the natural river channel below a hydropower dam to participate in a flow study designed to assess whether whitewater flows should be restored to this dewatered river reach on the Connecticut River. While significant obstacles remain, this site has the potential for providing instruction, playboating, and a big water feature that that could be run throughout much of the year and provide a much needed boost to the local economy.
