 September 12, 2007 began the year long photographic study of stream flow at the Old Forge Dam at the confluence of the Hunt River and Potowomut River. At the time the state of Rhode Island was suffering from a summer long lack of rain and concerns of a drought was on the minds of state officials. By using photographs combined with the data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey provided by their gaging station on site scientific data becomes more understandable by the general public.
