California 'Glory Hole' drains reservoir after heavy rains

The water level in the Lake Berryessa reservoir, 75 miles north of San Francisco, has risen so much that, unusually, water is pouring into its overflow pipe, as can be seen in footage published by The Vacaville Reporter. The overflow, known as the Morning Glory Spillway, or simply the Glory Hole, drains water once the reservoir is over capacity and shoots it into a creek below the Monticello Dam.

  1. Give me a mask, a scuba tank, an accelerometer, an inner tube and 3 go-pros and let's DO it!

  2. Google Ladybower plughole for another example. It's in the Lake District in the UK. Huge drain for the dam… there a lots of videos of people exploring it when it's all dry. Fantastic stuff.
