It’s kind of a thing here in Manhattan, Kansas. Tuttle Creek Lake (guess the name of the river that was dammed) is north of town about 3 miles and is part of the Army Corps of Engineers flood and navigation control system for the Missouri and Mississippi River. Over the past few months we’ve gotten a ton of rain (and Nebraska’s gotten more) and the reservoir is getting fuller and fuller. No one quite knows ALL the things that go into the Corps’ decision to release more or less water on any given day, but for a few weeks the outflow has increased. A lot. When I took these photos last weekend it was about 20,000 cubic feet per MINUTE! So that’s the thing. Going up to the tubes and seeing this massive amount of water gushing under the Tuttle Creek Lake Dam through the Tubes. Well, Tube, since one of them is closed for repairs.
