This photograph shows the completed, but empty, reservoir on Mt. Zircon Brook. The Mt. Zircon Dam measured 847 feet long and 57 feet high at the center, with a concrete core wall, four feet thick the entire length of it, set on solid ledge. The drainage area of the watershed is 2.6 square miles and its tributary was the Mt. Zircon Brook. The famous Mt. Zircon moontide springs are located and spill over within the watershed.
