Dry Reservoir Inflow Tower

Went for a hike near a dry reservoir last week and ended up taking an impulsive clamber through the inflow tower and outflow tunnel.

To my regret, I woke up an owl who was sleeping in the tower so I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon.


I figured there wasn't much flash flood risk with the hills this dry

It's a lot bigger up close...

But the grate is still too small to squeeze through comfortably

So over the top I went

Paused at the top to take a look around before heading down inside

Outflow pipe is about 3ft in diameter

There's a ladder up the inside of the tower, I guess for service access

I'm always pleasantly surprised by how clean the insides of drains can be

The tunnel went straight for a few hundred feet and then turned so I got to spend a bit of time in total darkness.

Looks like fun... at least you didn't get a face full of owl while climbing.
