Potter Hill Dam on Potter Hill Road in Westerly RI.
Pictures taken June 2017.


Just downstream of the dam on Potter Hill Road is this informal access to Pawcatuck River.


Now at the Stillman Avenue bridge looking downstream.
Pawcatuck River is split by an island.


The passage left of the island seems to be the easier one.


The rapids right of the island.


Now at the take out public ramp to Pawcatuck River on Main Street in Westerly RI.
