Who doesn’t love driving with the windows down, the sun setting and a warm breeze ushering spring in?  But I didn’t need to go two hours north to New Hampshire or two hours west to the Berkshires to “get away”. A few miles north of the Worcester line in Paxton is the Kettle Brook Reservoir.  City drinking water systems always fascinated me…from the reservoirs in Washington (MA) and Hinsdale that fed Pittsfield to the Massive man made wonder of the Quabbin that feeds the Boston area.  The Worcester Reservoir System  treatment plant utilizes a series of ten surface water reservoirs located in Leicester, Paxton, Rutland, Holden, and Princeton. The ten reservoirs combined, hold over 7 billion gallons of water.  On route 56, with scarcely a car driving by, you wouldn’t believe downtown Worcester was just five miles away.
