Conococheague Aqueduct, 1920 ( more details)

Flood Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


In 1920 the berm side of the Conococheague Aqueduct collapsed into the Conococheague Creek. The current created by the canal water flowing over the edge of the aqueduct caused a canal boat to plunge into the creek below. The canal boat stayed in the Conococheague creek until the 1936 flood carried it under the aqueduct and down the Potomac Valley.
