At certain times the entire flow of the Pawcatuck River had to be diverted around the project site to allow for safe and stable working conditions at the dam. The dam's control gates had long since vanished and will be replaced as part of our project. This photo shows the typical flow through the raceway before we diverted the river entirely.
