Water rushes through 12 spillway gates at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Hartwell Dam in the early morning hours of July 9, 2013. The Corps activated the spillway gates to release excess water after heavy rainfall the night before caused the reservoir to reach its maximum flood storage capacity of 665 feet per mean sea level.
