SAVILLE DAM


Barkhamsted, CT - The Saville Dam was completed in 1940 on the East Branch of the Farmington River. It is named for the chief engineer of the project, Caleb Mills Saville. The Barkhamsted Reservoir is about 8 miles long and extends from central Barkhamsted north into the town of Hartland almost to Massachusetts. The Reservoir is the primary water supply for the metropolitan Hartford area, which is about 25 miles away. Many Barkhamsted farms, houses and the village of Barkhamsted Hollow were located in the area flooded by the Reservoir. This is the gatehouse that controls the water going down to the lake below the dam.
