Sullivanville Dam

Our valleys, cut by the running water of our streams and rivers, are no strangers to seasonal and sometimes extraordinary flooding. The last great flood to affect our region was in 1976 and was attributed to hurricane Agnes which brought heavy rains up from the gulf coast. Afterwords major projects to manage runoff and prevent future calamities were started. The largest and last in a series of massive earthwork projects to safeguard against seasonal flooding, the Sullivanville Dam is a perfect spot to marvel at civil engineering in practice and take in the natural scenery of our region.
