Project #26: Water Purification Facility And Park
GEOMORPHIC SETTING: The site is located on a sensitive tributary of Long Island Sound. The site, which lies within the upper reaches of an estuary, is underlain by the Connecticut Valley Arkosic Sandstone. It can be viewed from a nearby overlook atop a basaltic sill. A parcel of land that includes the site, a dam, and reservoir were deeded by Eli Whitney to the people of region to serve its water supply needs (Fig. 1).
