Waterways in Bellows Falls May be Receiving Official Names

Three waterways in Bellows Falls and Walpole may be receiving official names. The Bellows Falls Village trustees have sent the Rockingham Conservation Commission a letter recommending that the unofficial names of three local waterways be deemed official.

The state will review the recommendations of Halladay Brook in Bellows Falls, Great Falls in Walpole, New Hampshire, and Hyde Hill Brook in Bellows Falls, before sending the recommendations to the federal government where they could become official.

But don’t hold your breath waiting for a quick response, as Rockingham Conservation Commission member Peter Bergstrom told the Brattleboro Reformer that it could take months before a decision is made, because the federal government is exceptionally cautious about making names official.
