You aren't likely to, JBTHEMILKER. This dam was completed in 1956, and the first time this spillway was opened was on June 1, 2011 as a result of the extraordinary rain the northern Great Plains has received. It was still opened when we were there about the first of August, but will probably not need to open again for another half century. But who knows.
