Flood Control


Connecticut River Flood Control System

The Connecticut River Flood Control System consists of approximately 5,000 linear feet of levee that extends from Pomeroy Terrace to the high ground west of Route 5 (Pleasant Street/Mount Tom Road). The levee has a maximum height of 23 feet.

This system also includes a pumping station to remove stormwater accumulated by the City's downtown drainage system when the Connecticut River is flowing at a high river stage and two stop log closure structures.
