The Spillway

This is the spillway at Fort Peck Lake. The spillway is used as an "overflow" of Fort Peck Lake. During high water levels, water will be drained from the lake through the spillway so as to prevent the lake from over-filling and going over the dam. As you can see here, though, no water is going through. Indeed, the water levels in Fort Peck Lake when I last visited were so low that the water didn't even reach the spillway! As such, the spillway was left high and dry.
