What’s Going On Inside The Hidroituango Dam Tunnels?

 

JUMP TO COMMENTS

To set the scene here, the Hidroituango dam and power plant in Colombia are still under construction, but due to flooding thousands of people downstream have been evacuated and are living in emergency shelters. To try to prevent a dam failure, the operators are using the generator tunnels to let water out of the dam (probably requiring the plant almost to be rebuilt after the emergency), and during this process the vibrations from the water are causing the effect shown in this video. The description below calls the fog a water mirror created when the water being let out through the power plant goes up and down.
