I have never ventured here before even though it is not 10 minutes from home. The area is beautiful, serene and bustling with natural life. In the early morning, you can see the mist evaporate. It looks pristine, but was once a managed water source for the Town of Clinton. Venturing into the paths, you can see cement and granite dams, pump houses and pipes. It is property in Sterling but purchased by the Town of Clinton in the late 1800's. It has been abandoned as a water resource for a long time since Clinton now obtains all of its water from the Wachusett Reservoir. Clinton had attempted to sell the water rights to Nestle Company, the owner of Poland Springs, but after much debate, that sale was ultimately denied. Efforts exist to return this to a natural flowing river.
