Here's a local dam under construction in 1903 or '04. The workers contaminated the creek and started a typhoid epidemic that killed several Cornell students and led to the city taking over the water supply. They knew the reservoir was too small and less than ten years later built one twice as big upstream.
Today it's a real problem thanks to youtube and FB as word has gotten out that it's great for cliff jumping. They come from hundreds of miles to jump both above and below the dam. And trash the place, trample all vegetation, spray paint the cliffs and building. But it's still a great place, especially this time of year.
