Spillway this was used to redirect water from behind the old mill when the level was too high, shot in North Carolina.
The western spillway or 'plughole' of Ladybower Reservoir. This was taken a few days ago and the water was just overflowing, I imagine it must be a torrent after the recent heavy rains.
Sharon Woods is part of the Hamilton County Park system. The spillway is at the northern end of the Gorge Trail.

Energy always attracts notice. Cars racing, planes flying, a thunder storm, and water dropping elevation quickly. Take away energy from the photo pool and you're left with hummingbirds flowers and sunsets.
The falls at the Bumbungan Eco Park were created when the Bumbungan River was dammed and the spillway used as an extension of the main road passing through Cavinti town. When the water level of the river rose and the river overflowed past the spillway to form the waterfall, the government built a bridge a short distance downriver to divert traffic away from the spillway.
The municipal government then converted the place into a picnic area and named it an eco park.

Water roars from fully open spillways on the Buffalo Bill Dam west of Cody WY in Shoshone Canyon on July 5, 2019. This is a view looking down canyon from the top of the dam.
Construction of Buffalo Bill Dam, six miles west of Cody, Wyoming, was the key that opened about 90,000 acres in Wyoming’s Bighorn Basin to irrigated farming. So dry and forbidding was this part of the state that it was one of the last regions in the United States to be settled. It wasn’t until the 1890s, with dreams of irrigating the region and turning it into productive farmland, that a significant number of people began to settle there. Among the visionaries were William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody and a group of investors who formed the Shoshone Land and Irrigation Company, founded the town of Cody, and acquired water rights from the Shoshone River to irrigate 60,000 acres. When the project proved cost prohibitive, the Wyoming State Board of Land Commissioners turned to the Federal Government for help. In early 1904, Buffalo Bill transferred his water rights to the Secretary of the Interior, and that July exploratory drilling began for Shoshone Dam--renamed Buffalo Bill Dam in 1946 in commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of Cody’s birth.
When completed in 1910, Buffalo Bill Dam stood as an engineering marvel, one of the first concrete arch dams built in the United States. At 325 feet high, it also was the highest dam in the world (surpassing New York’s Croton Dam). Buffalo Bill Dam was an American triumph touted, along with completion of the Panama Canal, at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. At the Exibition, the U.S. Reclamation Service, then barely a dozen years old, erected an exhibit featuring an idyllic forty-acre irrigated farmstead set in a desert valley rimmed by beautiful mountains. The exhibit showed the world how Wyoming’s Bighorn Basin was modified to serve human needs through construction of Buffalo Bill Dam. The dam was so significant in the modern development of the American West that it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places within the first five years of the register’s creation. The rich irrigated farmland in the Basin is the pot of gold under The Dam’s rainbow.
The height of the dam was raised 25’ in 1985 to its current height.
The Quabbin Reservoir is the largest inland body of water in Massachusetts, and was built between 1930 and 1939. Today, along with the Wachusett Reservoir, it is the primary water supply for Boston, some 65 miles (105 km) to the east as well as 40 other communities in Greater Boston. It also supplies water to three towns west of the reservoir and acts as backup supply for three others. It has an aggregate capacity of 412 billion US gallons (1,560 GL) and an area of 38.6 square miles (99.9 km2).

Thank you for taking a look!
This relief drain on the spillway to the waterwheel at Cable Mill helps to regulate the flow of water during periods of high rain. We just happened to be there the day after a heavy rain and it made for a beautiful shot. At Cades Cove, Smoky Mountain National Forest in Tennessee.
When visiting the lake in my hometown, Butner, N.C., I found myself locked out.
OK the real story is the road leading to the spillway was closed to vehicular traffic. I did enjoy the walk and the memories.
