Trip: On 8/5/2002, Rene Ohms led Jewel Cave employees Erik Karff, Jared Howell, & Tammi Skalitzky on a survey training trip to the Juice Room area in the Historic Section where they discovered a waterfall.
Trip Report: We had surveyed 87 feet when just after 9pm we heard the sound of rushing water and quickly discovered a large amount of water entering the cave from a dome at station E4F. We decided to abandon the survey and found it raining hard outside. (A subsequent cave radio test determined that the top of this dome is 3-feet below the sidewalk and the bottom of Wind Cave Canyon).
