Lowered Boom - My World



 
Lowered Boom - My World



low boom at the dam
 
 The bright orange boom at the dam is ready and waiting for the waters to rise.
 
It stretches from one end of the canal to the other.
 
As the water rises, it floats up.
 
It's main purpose is to keep the debris that floats on the top of the flood waters from touching and piling up around the dam building.
 
As the water lowers, the boom does also.
 
Once the waters are back to normal, the debris can be removed.
 
I love the bright orange against the darkness of the day.

  1. The contrast does make a pretty picture and I like how it just trails into the distance. Certainly easier on the eye than the debris it is there to control.
