Grant County was under a flash river flood watch because of the potential bread for uncontrolled water flow as water levels along the 8,320-foot-long dam were drawn down about 26 feet about 3 feet a day.
The problem was first identified after an 65 foot crack in columbia river dam engineer noticed a bowing in the roadway above the dam and later discovered that a concrete spillway was raised above the water.5 inches, according to Grant County Public Utility District spokesman Thomas Stredwick.
Earlier this week, an engineer noticed a slight irregular bowing above the spillway gates near where cars can drive across the dam.
