|Mouth||Milford Harbor to Long Island Sound|
The Wepawaug River is a stream in New Haven County in the U.S. state of Connecticut. It rises in Woodbridge and flows through Orange and Milford before discharging into Milford Harbor on Long Island Sound. Dams along the river form Wepawaug Reservoir, managed by the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority, Wepawaug Lake, and the Upper and Lower Lagoons. Race Brook is a tributary.
English settlers built a grist mill by the river in 1640. Another mill on the river in Orange made fabric for union soldiers’ uniforms during the American Civil War.
The stone Memorial Bridge was built across the river in Milford in 1899 to commemorate Milford's history and bears the names of Milford's first settlers. The river is also crossed by U.S. Route 1, Interstate 95, Route 34 and the Wilbur Cross Parkway.
