Edenville Dam Breach

Edenville Dam Breach

One of my favourite blogs (The Landslide Blog) has 3 very interesting articles about the the breaching of this dam in Michigan USA.
The FIRST gives the news and the information that its licence had been withdrawn.

The SECOND has a video showing the failure of the dam. It is this which drew my attention.

And the THIRD discusses what happened and the consequences. The author suggest many similar dams will need to be looked at as global warming is changing weather patterns and higher rainfall may be greater than many dams can cope with.
