Orovilles Dam’s Dirty Secret – The Operators of the Dam are Also the Inspectors of the Dam

WATER NOT LOWERED ENOUGH

Dr. Leuren Moret says, “The water is definitely not down 50′ like the media reported, probably not even 2′.  This is interesting – the dam is run by and inspected by the same agency. 

The Feds have just ordered them to have a complete analysis of the dam before and after this disaster – by completely independent experts.  This definitely never should have happened.  The naked berm for the emergency spill is just insane and that was apparent in 2005.

CNBC – Cracks may offer clues to California dam’s troubles

“Last August, a team of inspectors did not check the channel on foot but instead from afar, also concluding that everything looked fine.”

If the dam breaks “the wall of water will reach Sacramento in half an hour” (!!)

Dependence on government is a free choice. As long as you are willing to be controlled by a Police State.

Say, hows that Federal Education Dept. SWAT team doing? Are they competing against the well armed DEQ? Why do you need to arm a Chemist with their own Tactical Police FORCE?

Taxes paid for it. Lack of TAXES will dry up a big chunk of it…
But it needs to be bloody. They have a good thing going and they will not give up power with out BLOOD.

There is a quarry not far from the dam where they do blasting.

Dr. Leuren Moret says, “It looks to me like the earthquake popped some of the cement tiles up on the spillway in a straight line from the quarry to the spillway where it was first damaged, and that seemed to be in a straight line nearly perpendicular to the spillway.

Earthquake waves are made up of a compression (P) wave (compression expansion), and a sheer (S) wave that moves perpindicular to the direction the wave is travelling. Body waves travel through the earth, and surface waves travel on the surface. In addition to S and P waves there are also Rayleigh waves. They are called ground roll, or surface waves that travel as ripples with motions that are similar to those of waves on the surface of water. There are also Love waves that are horizontally polarized shear waves (SH waves).
But whether body or ground waves, they are all called seismic waves.”
