Western Ave.(An earth filled granite faced
high road dam)was built with road surface
at 17 feet USGS, only 6 feet above high tides. It is the largest part of the two pond containment. The cross dam from Gravelly Point to the Western Ave. Dam(now Mass Ave) was the spillway site at Ruggles Street where the controlled water flow from upper pond to lower pond turned the mill wheels. After several names
Washington St. became Huntington Ave. from Beacon St.(formerly Western Ave.) The Charles R.
is held at 13'USGS. Beacon St.is 17'.. often flooding results after storm flows upriver reach and overfill the Charles River Basin.
