Llyn Eigiau reservoir dismantled dam wall
Llyn Eigiau reservoir dismantled dam wall
In November 1925 this dam wall collapsed at a point near here. The reservoir waters surged out, gouging a culvert and joined the course of the Afon Porth-llwyd, swamping and breaching Coedty Reservoir below and then raging down the steep valley side onto the small village of Dolgarrog, taking 16 lives in the process. This section of wall was dismantled to prevent any reoccurence.
