Oroville Dam will fail in the coming days
The forecast for the region calls for torrential multi-day rains which will fill the reservoir faster than the main spillway can ever drain it. This will lead to the water overtopping the emergency spillway and leading either to the direct failure of the that spillway or headward erosion through the hillside, which will cause a total failure of the entire system. I can't believe the authorities let people return home in the face of what is obviously coming.

I've been keeping up with that situation. The amount of water they are expecting is at least as much as what made it overflow, if not more.

The drought will be back. It's cyclical. And the California retards will do exactly nothing to conserve water in preparation for the next one. I bet the lawn sprinklers are already running a high volume.

Those Cali people are the height of hypocrisy, pretending to care about nature while they waste water on lawns that should not exist in that climate.

And we shouldn't forget those other dams in the region. They are all at or very near capacity now too. There COULD be other disasters coming.

If anyone finds a decent live/streaming link, please post.

I've found a few, but they are no longer 'live.'

The evacuees were allowed to return to their homes a couple of days ago as far as I read, but I haven't been following this story because I've been so dam busy

Dam busy indeed. Maybe they need a dyke to plug the holes?

Lessons to be learned...

Quote:The renewed focus on dam safety is a good thing. So is the attention brought by the Oroville Dam drama to the broader problem of how we have let our infrastructure fall apart with spotty maintenance and lack of money for repairs.

RE: Oroville Dam will fail in the coming days
Yes, our infrastructure is falling apart. Bridges, electric towers, water lines, sewer lines, storm drains, all of it. Even the roads and highways are falling into disrepair. Most of it was maintained by state employees until a few decades back when the govs started letting their employees go and privatizing the upkeep. Even the grass on highways is cut by contractors now. I wonder how much money was made by the politicians during that time and since.
