Boaters warned to avoid area near Nashawannuck dam in Easthampton

Hampshire County

EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Boaters and kayakers are being advised to avoid the area near the dam in Nashawannuck after a large downed tree blocked the dam.

The Easthampton Fire Department on Tuesday said they relocated the tree away from the dam that would eventually cause debris to block the dam and cause water flow and algae problems. 

The area near the dam in Nashawannuck should be avoided because the flow of water is very fast after the recent heavy rain, fire officials said.
