Medina Dam - Spillway Overflows

Medina Lake, TX

This is a closer view of the spillway. The spray and geysers of water is where the overflood of 9+ feet of water is seeking an exit. The spillway is by design to prevent the water from going over the top of the dam and thereby endangering the integrity of the dam itself.
