Tempe Town Lake is draining into the riverbed Tuesday night, as an inflatable bladder filled with water collapses.
There are several bladders, or thick rubber water balloons, on the west side dam of Tempe Town Lake. One of several bladders popped about 10 p.m. and is pouring water into the Salt River...
A large rush of water is now flowing down the Salt River and could be dangerous for people swimming or on the banks of the river.
