The Ashaway River is a river in the U.S. states of Rhode Island and Connecticut. It flows approximately 4 km (2 mi). There are three dams along the river's length.[1]

Course[edit]

The river is formed in Hopkinton by the confluence of Parmenter Brook and the Green Fall River, about 500 feet north of Interstate 95, and just a few feet east of the Connecticut state line. From there, it flows south-southwest, briefly entering North Stonington, Connecticut for about 500 feet, before turning southeast and crossing back into Rhode Island and continuing through Hopkinton to its mouth at the Pawcatuck River.

Crossings[edit]

Below is a list of all crossings over the Ashaway River. The list starts at the headwaters and goes downstream.

Tributaries[edit]

The Ashaway River has no named tributaries, though it has many unnamed streams that feed it.
