34. Hadn't thought about the momentum of those massive ice sheets.

That would certainly do the damage. And, if I'm interpreting the photos correctly, the gate panels on this dam were made of timbers.

I saw quite a number of those small dams in passing during my work in field service. As you said, many were built with private funds for mills, factories and power plants and many are still being used.
