Since Pathfinder Dam was completed in 1909, the water has only been high enough to spillover the dam seven times. This year makes it eight.

 The water started over the spill way on Sunday and by all accounts could continue for the next three months. It is a pretty spectacular sight and one that doesn't happen very often. It is well worth your time and the drive to see it in person.

these are the years that Pathfinder has spilled over.
