That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

3:16 from the city Adam. The towns of Adam and Zaretan were near the confluence of the rivers Jabbok and Jordan, some fifteen miles north of the Dead Sea. This long stretch of dry river bed provided ample room for the Israelites to cross over Jordan. This verse should be understood in the sense “an heap very far away, at the city Adam.”
