Habitats and Wildlife
This manmade pond is surrounded by maple trees, grass and shrubs. A concrete platform makes it easy to observe the dam that holds the pond in place.
Longwater Brook and two additional streams flow together at this spot. A dam holds the pond in place. Farther below the dam, Longwater Brook flows into the Drinkwater River. The Drinkwater River and French’s Stream flow together to form the Indian Head River. All of this takes place in Hanover. The Indian Head River joins with Herring Brook on the Hanover/Hanson/Pembroke line to form the North River, which flows through Hanover, Pembroke, Norwell, Marshfield and Scituate to its outlet at the Atlantic Ocean between Third and Fourth Cliffs, near Humarock.
