Dams - Redridge

Disasters, Earthwork, Dams, Water Redridge Steel Dam going over at flood stage on Easter Sunday 1941. The pressure of water was so great that the "gates" of the spillway were beginning to collapse, one by one until there were none left out of the six that were holding the water back. In 1947, the Copper Range Company decided to lower the water in the steel dam down to its lowest point at lower pipe level. In 1978 the company sent two men with torches to cut four large holes in the bottom of the steel each 4 ft. by 6 ft. to permit all water to escape after each spring flood run-off. Only the Atlantic Mining Company's log dam remains to impound water from the Salmon Trout River. [Image of the overflow of water rushing through the dam.]
