Oroville Dam Spillway Gets Interesting

17 04 2019

At 3 a.m. PDT this morning a big gush of 227 CSF water blasted down the spillway. It went down the side they didn’t close off.  LIVE DATA

Something is very odd about the data cut offs* from the info page in the last 2 days and the way they shut all the water off to just a trickle. We know there’s heavy snow melt happening now and the dam water level is only rising, not lowering.  We suspect  the “repairs” to the spillway have problems and there is a news black-out on it.

Keep in mind the dam is the big employer in the town endangered by it.

The snow in CA is 169% avg. for this time of year. See blue line in this chart:

9 am – Res. ele. 866.37,

10 am – Res. ele. 866.42,

So lake level UP
and outflow DOWN…

It appears California DWR has a problem with harmonic waves in the main spillway. The video below shows galloping Gurdie, with the perfect span to create simple harmonic waves. Are we looking at the galloping Oroville spillway, which is activated when the rushing water creates the perfect harmonic wave? Better call Scott Cahill before the snowmelt arrives in full.

Watch “1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse (from TWC’s Weather Caught On Camera)” on You Tube.

Expert[Scott Cahill] Claims CA Water Officials Are Flirting With Disaster At Oroville Dam.
Excerpt: …Scott Cahill told News Radio KFBK, water can be seen seeping from the foot of the dam and dozens of points along the new spillway. “That concrete spillway slab is now moving water, which is evolving up through the slab today,” Cahill told News Radio KFBK. “Very similar to what it did before the failure (in 2017).”…Cahill…sent his concerns to [DWR] but…officials have not replied.

“A really simple explanation of harmonic motion would be to take the situation of 2 kids holding a sagging jump rope. One of the kids slowly shakes the jump rope up and down. The wave travels down the rope to the other kid. The other kid shakes her end of the rope in sequence to keep the rope in a constant wave. They can adjust their distance apart by moving closer together to get the nice standing wave in the jump rope. The jump rope gets more difficult to hold because the wave going back to the other kid wants to increase in height but, the kids hold the jump rope tight. This is harmonic motion. The length of the spillway is fixed, unlike the kids holding the jump rope. And it just happens to be the correct distance to make a nice standing wave, like the jump rope explanation. Unlike the 2 girls holding the jump rope the main spillway can’t move closer to the nice standing wave, like the jump rope kids holding the jump rope tight. Instead, the main spillway will pull apart. Engineers use the word “vibration” wave to signify jump rope waves. Explanation at bottom of post that should solve the problem. Only they might not have enough time to fix the situation.”

Marty plays a video by USGS, which states at 4:40 that it appears water is seeping into small cracks below the spillway, thus causing tremors. Marty says he’ll have a film crew down at the dam to get footage of the grassy areas and the green spot This weekend.

So, we’re 30 feet from the top of the dam. I wish I knew how high Oroville lake level had to be for the water to start flowing down the emergency spillway. You know it’s less than 30 feet.

I posted the evacuation info as that computer simulation shows just 30 min. to get out before being swallowed up if it fails and just slightly more time in other scenarios.

Just like people have to make their decisions about Oroville rather than trust the bogus information coming out of California DWR. That dam is a MESS!!! People better make their decisions and get hell out of the way. I’m listening to the prerecorded video now and, Trumpet news, Blazing Press guy starts talking exclusively about the Oroville situation at 7:45.

They knew that there were problems with the main spillway 3 weeks before throwing open the gates. Sounds pretty irresponsible to me❗💩💩💩💩

The story was widely reported and many papers are available on it. Hodges and that crew all making hooey without ever giving accurate information. They get funded to pass out bad info.

We’ll see if he comes through with video of the green spot, tall grass and other areas of the dam this weekend. We’ll have to see what other kind of information Marty gets off California DWR computers. Time is slim, honest news sources are slim, and we need to see the accuracy of Marty’s Wackadoodle News.
I sent you in that video about the Tacoma Bridge waving and breaking up because of simple harmonic motion. Marty has mentioned harmonic motion, DWR has new sensors on the spillway to measure frequencies, which certain frequency combinations can cause simple harmonic motion. Perth Observer noticed the tremors when the spillway is flowing violently. Water crashing onto the spillway and the perfect spillway length may cause simple harmomic motion. The USGS talks about microfractures under the spillway causing tremors, which can be activated by frequency. That’s how HAARP creates earthquakes.
