    A beautiful example of a Morning Glory Hole in action.

    I remember my days in Varsity when I tried to wrap my head around how the hell this contraption even worked!

    Hydraulics makes more and more sense everyday I work in the field

    • Wow this a marvel indeed have you figured out how it works now? Care to share?
        • Good day Mr Mthethwa
          Yes I have figured it out. It is used for level control of water bodies.
          As you can see in the video, there is a road that is relatively close to the water surface. The glory hole makes sure that the water level never goes beyond a point that would result in flooding the road.
          Its usually used in areas where there is a dam as well. To make sure the water does not overflow over the Dam wall.
          The water is usually discharged downstream or at the toe of the dam.
