Wirtgen Cold Milling Machines Key At Oroville Dam
https://www.constructionequipmentguide.com/wirtgen-cold-milling-machines-key-at-oroville-dam/48351

“In a grueling mountain application — while aimed downward at a 30-degree angle and steadied by cables from the top — two Wirtgen cold milling machines removed a temporary, emergency-placed concrete surface of the lower part of the great spillway of the Oroville Dam and reservoir in advance of permanent resurfacing.”

… the article leaves out the part of maintenance neglect and shoddy construction leading up to the spillway failure.
