Drain the Reservoir - 2006

Did you ever wonder about what the Smithville branch of the Souhegan River looked like before Flood Control Dam was built? These photos from 2006 show that it was a forested field. The stumps have held up well underwater. I'm not sure why they drained the dam this year.

Drained and dry

I have not seen the reservoir look like this since 2006
