    Error in history
    The history section incorrectly refers to the Long Island Railroad entering the area. The LIRR entered the Patchoge River area in Patchogue, Long Island, NY, not Westbrook, CT. This sentence should be removed from the narrative.

    The rivers, streams, and brooks in West River Watershed make up approximately 100 miles of waterways. [Figure 1.2] The South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority maintains five lakes in West River Watershed with a total area of 0.66 sq-mi which have 2.7 billion gallons of drinking water readily available: Lake Bethany, Lake Watrous, Lake Chamberlain, Lake Dawson, and Lake Glen.[2] In addition, West River features several smaller ponds and wetland regions with significance to the overall watershed. Much of the wetland region is found below Konold’s Pond, particularly alongside and below West River Memorial Park, which runs along Ella Grasso Blvd. in New Haven.
    The portions of West River above Konold’s Pond lie in suburban residential areas, surrounded by forest. A section of West River that includes Lake Watrous, Lake Dawson, Konold’s Pond, and Lake Wintergreen lie in close proximity to West Rock Ridge State Park. As shown in Figure 1.3, much of the eastern Wintergreen Brook subwatershed as well as the sections of West River below Konold’s Pond lie in heavily urbanized areas of Hamden, New Haven and West Haven.[3]
