Dam Holding Up Tempe Town Lake Breaks in the Desert

Break a dam anywhere else in the country and all hell breaks loose.

Break the dam holding together Tempe’s Town Lake – a man-made creation inside the otherwise dry Salt River channel – and, well, not much happens except some triathlons get canceled and the water level goes poof.

Video clip’s courtesy of azcentral.com and, needless to say, there likely will not be a state of emergency declared anytime soon. Lake should be back to normal in a few months.
