Dam spill about to grow dramatically
The few inches of water coming over the top of Grand Coulee Dam the last few days is about to turn into several feet of water.
By about 5:30 p.m. tonight (Thursday), the Bureau of Reclamation expects to be spilling about 60,000 cubic feet per second.
Earlier today it was spilling about 15,000; the photo in this week’s Star pictures a spill of less than one third that amount.
This would be a good time for photos.
Let’s see, that would be about 10,000 bathtubs a second!
It’s truly an awesome sight when mire than 4,300 cubic feet of water per second flow over the top of Grand Coulee Dam.
