Tipping point?

Did flood waters crest this dam?

– Hardly.


The summer recession is well underway.

Harford County Maryland’s Deer Creek crested at 400 cubic feet per second (cfs) as early as March, but has been steadily dropping down ever since. It’s currently at 70 cfs.

Blame that on a dry June.


Typically the creek reaches its low-water ebb by summer’s end (in August or September) at around 50 cfs.

When it does and even so:

Expect water to continue to overtop this concrete wedge and slide down.


That almost makes it more a waterfall than a dam.
