Canada Pond

This man-made pond on the West River covers 23 acres at the border of Providence and North Providence, Rhode Island. The West River flows south 8 miles (13km) from Lincoln to join the Moshassuck River in Providence. The mills it once served – the Wanskuck Company, Geneva Mill, Silver Spring Mill, Steere Mill – defined the area's development. Canada Pond is a wildlife conservation and recreation area, but the the West River system is dogged by problems from industrial drainage, refuse dumping, sewage overflows and stormwater runoff.

I've lived less than 10 yards from Canada Pond for 11 years, and used to call it 'the sewer ditch.' But since a December, 2006 construction project cleared a stand of trees, I've been able to watch it more closely. There's more here than meets the eye.

Please enjoy these photos and feel free to leave comments! Newest photos are at the beginning, and 'original' size looks best.
