On June 23, 1983, billions of gallons of water broke through the DMAD Dam northeast of Delta and spread across low laying lands and roads–including this road located two miles northwest of Delta–and flooded the towns of Deseret and Oasis with several feet of water. The spillway of the earthen DMAD Dam was destroyed by heavy rains and rapid spring runoff. (Photo courtesy of National Weather Service.)
