Ten Mile River Watershed Council 

A 501c3 nonprofit working to Protect and Promote the Ten Mile River

 









The Ten Mile River Watershed covers 54 square miles of Northeastern Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. It is one of 27 watersheds in Massachusetts, and one of the 10 Rhode Island watersheds. It is also the smallest Massachusetts watershed.


The headwaters of the Ten Mile River begin in Plainville and Foxboro MA, with two major tributaries: the Bungay and the Seven Mile rivers. There are 45 lakes and ponds in the watershed, and many towns once used it as a source of drinking water.


The river travels through North Attleboro, Attleboro, and Seekonk, MA, and Pawtucket and East Providence Rhode Island before reaching the Seekonk River at Omega Falls.


The Turner reservior provides for good bass and perch fishing, plus it supports a healthy river herring spawning ground. There are three fish ladders built on the river: at Omega Dam, Hunts Mills, and Turner Dam, allowing fish to reach as far up river as Armistice Boulevard in Pawtucket.
