Hi Howard and All:          Re: Grist Mill Project // Water Source
    Please enlighten me as to the route of the water that feeds the wheel that drives
the mill.  I cannot locate a creek or source that feeds it and it would give me the
total picture of its history etc.  A wonderful project and best of luck with it !!!
                    With Best Regards Always,  Ron.
Hi Ron,
I added several January 10, 2020 drone aerials. The source of the water flow is Silver Lake located south of the Roslyn Grist Mill.

Howard, thanks for the posting Roslyn Times of Jan. 31, the page of the photo collages in the middle with me your groupie next to your favorite co-author Al Velocci checking out the water is still flowing from Silver Lake.

The lake or the 2 ponds south must be fed by an underground spring for flow to occur. And maybe the natural elevation is higher to lower north to the harbor? It’ll be neat to witness the Gristmill in action!
Howard Kroplick
Brian, you are 100% correct. Silver Lake and the Roslyn ponds are fed by springs from the surround hills (including Harbor Hill). Our end objective is to return the water mill to the Roslyn Grist Mill.
