    I think the huge gap is what became the spillway, so I've geotagged this as precisely as possible.

    this picture is awesome, right now since of the drought, you can see the old steel tower used to build it, cut in half since being decommissioned.....i was curious of the water level, and it's even more interesting.....you can even see the old train tunnels!!! so cool.
