Quabbin Reservoir

User Rating: / 4
PoorBest 

Quabbin Reservoir is one of the largest man made public water supplies in the United States.  It was created in the 1930’s by the construction of two huge earthen dams.  The reservoir covers 39 square miles, is 18 miles long, and can hold 412 billion gallons of water.  It is one of the primary water supplies for Boston.    Before the reservoir was built there was a hill in Enfield called Quabbin hill and a lake in Greenwich called Quabbin Lake.  Both of these names are named after a Native American Chief called Nani-Quaben, meaning place of many waters.  These names became the basis for naming the new reservoir.
