This is scary when you look at this new LIVE DATA sent in by reader, K. M. –

LATEST water levels    |    Water Data home page

Oroville Dam Failure Begins at the 908 Foot Lake Level According to The California Department of Water Resources

“Information recently released by the California Division of Water Resources indicates that

1.  Oroville Dam failures will begin at the Emergency Spillway when lake levels reach 908 feet
2.  Oroville Dam failures will begin at the Main Spillway when lake levels reach 908 feet
3.  At a 899 ft lake level it only takes ~ 6 inches of rain in 21 hours to reach the 908 foot failure point”

     . . . (more)     


So now we have to look out for rain as well as snow-melt.

Sounds too hippy-dippy to say it,
but the Capitol building and the parks around it…
seemed almost like a false holographic projection,
a ground which will swallow up the whole mushy
valley. Yucky!

Is this water? What is the source? This area is not new. I’ve seen similar patterns in weeks past. The Emergency Spillway is not supposed to kick in until the reservoir elevation is at 901 feet.

Speaking of mystery pipes, I saw water squirting from under the ledge at the very top of the Main Spillway this morning.

newspaper description from #2 photo –
https://www.mercurynews.com/2017/02/19/oroville-dam-dramatic-photos-show-damage-to-dams-emergency-spillway/

“As of 9 a.m. Sunday, the elevation of the reservoir was 852 feet, down about 49 feet when water began flowing over the emergency spillway at Oroville Dam Feb. 11. That overflow prompted an emergency evacuation order affecting nearly 190,000 people downstream after authorities became concerned the emergency might fail.” so it cannot take much over 900 feet ….

Is the area larger today because the lake level is increasing, thus, causing more pressure to push the lake water through a crack in the Emergency Spillway?

Area resident that had to evacuate during the first dam mishap is concerned that the entire old dam wasn’t refurbished. Dam looks pretty but DWR never shows video of the cracks in the gates, supposedly minor, and other problems I’ve read about with dam operations.

Watch “Water Flowing Again Down Rebuilt Oroville Dam Spillway” on You Tube.

From above article: “California’s cities and farms can expect ample water supplies this summer,” said DWR Director Karla Nemeth, in a prepared statement.

And…………where will they put all of this glorious water when most dams in Northern California are at or near capacity. The dams are already holding back water to keep Oroville Lake from catastrophe! How can they be so compartmentalized not realize this fact? They can download the “California Dam Capacity” map for free.
