The Westons Mill Pond is a dammed section of the Lawrence Brook located in the Westons Mills section of East Brunswick, New Jersey, United States.[1] It is one of a series of dams on the Lawrence Brook. The Westons Mill Pond Dam is the dam that controls reservoir output. The Westons Mill Pond is available for boating, although gasoline motors are prohibited due to the highly sensitive wildlife ecosystems found there.[citation needed]

Dam[edit]

The dam is found near Route 18 in the outskirts of New Brunswick. Its elevation is 16 feet above sea level.[2] It can be accessed on Burnet Street (Tower Center Boulevard), where the maintenance equipment is stored. There is a second, unofficial dam slightly farther upstream.
