"Pot Holes" Area
This scene is typical of the "pot holes" area southwest of Moses Lake, where many square miles of fine, shifting sand dunes were left as the downwearing of the Drumheller Channels drained the glacial waters from the Quincy Basin. Present plans indicate that part of this area will again be flooded when a great earthen dam is constructed across the southern end of this drainage creating a wide, shallow lake and also raising the elevation of Moses Lake.
Sand Dunes that were partially inundated with shallow water following completion of the Columbia Basin Project.
