THE WEPAWAUG RIVER 


THE WEPAWAUG.    NOT JUST A RIVER,  IT IS THE TITLE OF OUR YEARBOOK AND SCHOOL NEWSPAPER, WEPAWAUG TIMES OF MILFORD HIGH SCHOOL (WETHOMAS).  THE WEPAWAUG RIVER IS NAMED AFTER THE WEPAWAUG INDIANS FROM WHOM EARLY SETTLERS PURCHASED LAND.  IT NOT ONLY COURSES THROUGH OUR TOWN BUT ALSO HAS  IMPACTED ON OUR LIVES.   THE WEPAWAUG IS USUALLY  QUIET AND CALM, HOWEVER, IN 1982 IT WENT ON A  RAMPAGE OVERFLOWING ITS BANKS AND CREATING A SERIOUS FLOOD WHICH CAUSED MUCH DAMAGE .
