Winooski River


Winooski River

      river in north-central Vermont, U.S. It rises near Cabot in Washington county and flows southwest, then northwest across the state through the Green Mountains, past Montpelier and Waterbury, to drain into Lake Champlain (Champlain, Lake) near Winooski after a course of about 95 miles (153 km). The river's name comes from an Indian word meaning “wild onion.” Flood-control and hydroelectric-power projects on the river and its tributaries include the East Barre Dam on the Jail Branch (1935).
