A Monitor (Water Canon) at Malikoff Diggings State Park

A Monitor (Water Canon) at Malikoff Diggings State Park

Water canons washed a hold in the mountains that was 1,000 feet long, 700 feet wide, and 300 feet deep. Debris clogged the San Francisco Bay and raised the bottom of the Yuba River higher than the cities of Yuba and Marysville, which lie on either side of it in the Sacramento Valley; levees still hold back the water.
