From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Moosup River is a river in the U.S. states of Rhode Island and Connecticut. It flows approximately 23.7 miles (38.1 km).[1] The river is named after the Native American sachem Maussup.[2]

The river rises from Clark Pond in Foster, Rhode Island. From there, it flows south through Foster and Coventry, then turns west and heads into Connecticut, flowing through Sterling and Plainfield to its mouth at the Quinebaug River.

Dam Removal

The American Rivers organization has targeted the Moosup River for dam removal to help fish to swim upstream to spawn. In late June 2014 Moosup Dam #1 in Connecticut was removed [3] and on September 29, 2015, the Griswold Rubber dam in Connecticut was removed.[4]


Below is a list all crossings over the Moosup River. The list starts at the headwaters and goes downstream.
