At the Little Dam in Valley City, the Sheyenne River only falls a few feet, but the circulating currents at the base have the power to trap victims. Low-head dams like the Little Dam are notorious for their lethalness, despite their sometimes unintimidating appearances. In this photo from April 2014, emergency crews gather on the banks during a search for college student Dan Buehner. He was one of two people who have drowned in the dam’s tailwaters since 2012.
