Weird Dam Stories: Idaho’s foundation for settlement, industry, agriculture, and more has relied heavily on dams. The history of dams in Idaho is varied and there are numerous purposes, uses, and types. Some of the most fascinating engineering feats in Idaho have been accomplished through the development of dams. As dams developed throughout the state, small mishaps led to weird stories and instances related to Idaho dams. Two examples of weird dam stories are the Breech of the Teton Dam, where an entire vicinity was wiped out, and an opposite scenario where the entire City of American Falls was lifted from the ground and moved in order to accommodate the reservoir. Come hear about these (and more!) interesting and weird dam stories.
