The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Connecticut State Department of Environmental Protection manage the natural resources at Mansfield Hollow Lake. Managing the 2,472 acres helps to meet present needs, and assures a diversity of resources for future generations to enjoy.
Mansfield Hollow Lake Dam lies on the confluence of the Natchaug, Fenton, and Mt. Hope Rivers, in the township of Mansfield Center, CT. The dam is part of a network of six flood control dams in the Thames River Basin, constructed and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This network helps to reduce flooding in communities along the Thames River by controlling water on upstream tributaries in Massachusetts and Connecticut. Mansfield Hollow Dam was completed in 1952, at a cost of $6.5 million. As of September 1999, it had prevented $43.2 million in flood damages.
