Ice breakup at the base of the Coralville Mill Dam, undated
A picture of the Coralville Mill Dam from the river bank, near where the Iowa City Electric Light and Power Company was built around 1915 (Walch, p. 32). While the river water flows undeterred through the dam, large chunks of ice form near the base of the falling water. The melting of this ice would often cause the Iowa River to flood during the spring season.
