Background[edit | edit source]
Before the Great War, a reservoir known as Summersville Lake was created by the building of the Summersville Dam on the Gauley River. In 2082, raider David Thorpe destroyed the dam, letting the reservoir flood, swelling the banks of the river through the nearby city of Charleston in what would be called the Christmas Flood. Afterward, the reservoir became a dry lake bed, and a stream is all that remains of the Gauley River.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
The Gauley River appears only in Fallout 76.
