About this Location

The Arnold Mills Reservoir was built in 1927 to add more water as urban expansion increased. This reservoir along with the Diamond Hill Reservoir is for drinking water purposes only. There is no recreational use, fishing, swimming, or boating in the reservoir and it is protected, operated, and owned by Pawtucket Water Works, though it resides in the town of Cumberland.
