Waves of heavy rain were too much for the Colton Dam during the deluge on July 11-12. The dam washed away, and with it, the Colton Flowage. As Mike Palucci described it, "We got 12 inches of rain last night [July 11-12] which blew out the dam on the flowage so now it's a river again." More information about the washout and its aftermath will be in next week's "Spoooner Advocate."
