Dam Disaster

Eigiau lake on the edge of the Carneddau range of mountains in Snowdonia, Gwynedd, north Wales was the scene of a terrible disaster on 2nd November 1925. Following 26 inches of rain in just five days, the dam (built just 14 years earlier) burst and water flooded down to Coedty reservoir, which also burst, causing millions of gallons of water to flow down onto the village of Dolgarrog killing 17 people.
