Embankment dam at Orrin Reservoir
The water level in Orrin Reservoir is normally within a couple of feet of the top of this structure but with the recent dry weather, it has dropped at least forty feet. You can now walk on the bed of Orrin Reservoir on ground that possibly hasn't seen the light of day for 50 years.
