California Map

Also Oroville Dam Watch Group got some answers back from DWR people about various topics. Text is here [in PDF].
DWR says the cameras being down is the fault of the state parks people, not them.

This CA hydroelectric info site has no data after  2018 – we were trying to find out if they put a new turbine in the Hyatt power plant.

I was checking on wether the 6th turbine was installed or not and came across this article about the refurbishment of the 6 turbines and reasons this work needed to be done. Notice 1 of the 2 companies doing the refurbishment is GE of Canada.

Gaining Value by Increasing Efficiency.
Excerpt:
Refurbishment work performed
DWR developed the design for the rehabilitation work to be performed at Hyatt, including preparation of the plans and specifications. Refurbishment of the turbines and pump-turbines were awarded as two separate contracts through a competitive bidding process. Turbine refurbishment work was awarded to VA Tech Hydro of Austria in February 1999.

As soon as the design of the turbine contract was completed, DWR started to prepare plans and specifications for the pump-turbine contract. This contract was awarded to GE Hydro of Canada in November 2001.
