The morning glory spillway associated with the Monticello Dam that holds back Lake Berryessa in California allows water to bypass the dam when it reaches capacity (1370 m³/s). The outside diameter of the spillway is 22 metres, slowly narrowing to 8.5m at the exit. The spillway is designed to handle a maximum of 1,370,319 litres of water per second.
