POTOMAC RIVER NEAR WASH, DC LITTLE FALLS PUMP STA
usgs-01646500 2.20 - 7.00 ft I 00h59m 3.01 ft (running)


River Description

Flatwater.  Rarely paddled by whitewater boaters because there's little of interest in terms of rapids.  It needs to be stressed that the low head dam (Brookmont Dam) at the end of this run is very dangerous.  Paddlers MUST take-out above this Dam.

Take out before the dangerous low head dam at Little Falls.
