The Connecticut River Flood Control System consists of approximately 5,000 linear feet of levee that extends from Pomeroy Terrace to the high ground west of Route 5 (Pleasant Street/Mount Tom Road). The levee has a maximum height of 23 feet.
This system also includes a pumping station to remove stormwater accumulated by the City's downtown drainage system when the Connecticut River is flowing at a high river stage and two stop log closure structures.
