This memo has a nice photo of the side of the spillway as it was re-built where it is cracking –

KCRA (2017) OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) —
Communities just downstream of Lake Oroville dam would not receive adequate warning or time for evacuations if the 770-foot-tall dam itself — rather than its spillways — were to abruptly fail, the state water agency that operates the nation’s tallest dam repeatedly advised federal regulators a half-decade ago.

A framegrab from the Top Spillway CAM. Has the CAM’s location been reassigned by California DWR in preparing for the inevitable use of the Emergency Spillway?

I doubt they would pay all that overtime and work at night to fix up a boat ramp or whatever at the recreation area they claimed they were working on….

Millie Kay explains with pictures and drawings how the entire dam system works. The height of the dam is 922 feet.

Watch “How Does Water Get Out of Oroville Reservoir? ~ Millie Kay 04/26/19” on You Tube.

I think this is foolish to allow the water so high. The dam is not engineered to hold water way up at the top … it stresses the whole integrity of the dam.

Yeah, and isn’t the face of the dam 50-60 years old?

Not that it rivals the impending Dam Collapse,
but, in Questa NM, many years back,
they promoted a Moly-mine waste-water catchment
as a new Turquoise Lake recreation area.
The big ribbon-cutting ceremony was planned,
Fish were stocked into the water a few days before.
Dead fish quickly stunk up the artificial beach.
Midnight crews had to come and remove as many dead
stinky fish as they could, the night before the Big Deal.
It is a dead place.
The mine authorities are supposed to guarantee that
the cadmium-rich dust is wetted to keep it from flying.
Another mountain place poisoned.
The dust flies. the wells are metallized.

The trouble is there’s just too many damn people who “need” too many things and making that many things creates huge pollution.
Now China wants to catch up to wasteful US and build mega-cities for its mega-population. The wealthy on the planet are already using up more resources than the planet even has.
It will be a dogfight from now own over the scant resources left.

You can see that the reservoir level has risen 3/4 of a foot in 12 daylight hours. So if the reservoir level rose 3/4 of a foot in the 12 nighttime hours as well, that means the reservoir rose 1.5 feet in one 24-hour period. That means that, if the reservoir level rises consistently for 7 days, the emergency spillway will be used next Sunday.

Are these outflow numbers correct? Earlier this week water slowed to a trickle down the Main Spillway and the outflow remained around 9K cfs. What changed?
