An aerial photograph, taken about 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 6, 2012, at Brown Bridge Dam, shows dam pond water rushing through the "dewatering structure" after the breach. All but some two feet of the remaining 22-foot deep pond drained in six hours. The torrent crested at Beitner Road Bridge about 11:30 p.m. at 5 feet above normal levels.
