If you click on the vid the title is: Saylorville Spillway - 3-21-2007
And the description says: The outlet channel is a single circular concrete conduit, 22 ft. in diameter, located at the bottom of the west bluff. The control structure is located at the upstream end of the conduit and houses three gates, which have the capability of releasing a maximum outflow of 21,000 cubic feet of water per second (c.f.s.).

A quick google of the title reveals: Saylorville Lake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On the Des Moines River in Iowa in Polk County Iowa.

The outlet tube is 22 feet in diameter so I'm going to say that at its deepest toward the far end of the spillway it is probably closer to 40ft deep just judging by visual comparison.

wow thats just plain disgusting, the only hole I have ever seen that could ever compare to that is this gigantic hydraulic I saw on the...Misstasini...driving over a bridge in Northern Quebec that dumps into lac St jean.
...oh but this one wasn't man made
