Madute Rapulane posted an update 1 week, 3 days agoA 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.
Thank you for explanation
