Watch the Quinebaug

The Quinebaug River at Jewett City is an interesting river to watch. The Quinebaug is a flood controlled river (West Thompson Dam) but there’s a lot of distance between the dam near the Massachusetts border and Jewett City.

Right now the river is at 17.8 feet and rising fast. The Quinebaug has not seen major flooding (21 feet) since 1955! The 1982 level of the Quinebaug was 19.1 feet so it will be interesting to see how high the river can get.
