UPDATE: An explanation for the outflow shut-off

Sacramento BeeState officials temporarily shut down power plant at Lake Oroville

” . . . Officials turned off the plant at 10 a.m. Saturday and began efforts to deepen the channel at the base of the plant, which will allow for increased releases. They expect the shutdown to last one to two days.”

Oroville Dam Week 2: Snow Melt Threat

27 02 2017

Breitbart News Northern California Snowmelt Crisis as Temps Rise into 70s

” . . . as temperatures rise to 65 degrees in mid-mountain elevations at the 6–8,000 foot levels that received 3 feet of snow in the last set of storms, 13-degree-above-average temperatures are about to trigger an early spring snowmelt,”

NOTE: Upper Feather River data and dam data links are on last Monday’ post.


KRCR –  Feb. 26 – Shasta Lake Area gets a SNOW WARNING

Snow will begin this afternoon and taper off to lighter snow late this evening. * MAIN IMPACT...Weekend travelers could experience travel delays, chain controls, and slick roadways. * SNOW AMOUNTS...Between 2 and 4 inches of snow expected for mountain passes, including Interstate 5 north of Lake Shasta.

  • Can Oroville Dam’s badly damaged spillway hold up through the rainy season?

    ” . . . with at least five more weeks to go in California’s rainy season, and billions of gallons of water waiting to rush into the reservoir when the snowpack blanketing the Sierra Nevada melts this spring, the question on the minds of many living in the Sacramento Valley is this:
    Just how long can the badly damaged spillway hold up?

  • Oroville Dam’s banged-up spillway to shut down Monday

    “. . . DWR said it will begin dialing back the flows at 6:45 a.m. Monday, bringing the releases to a halt by sometime in the afternoon. DWR said it plans to keep the outflows at zero “for several days”.
    Dam operators have been moving in equipment to a water channel beneath the spillway in order to remove the pile of mud, concrete and other debris that’s accumulated since the crater developed Feb. 7. The pile is backing water up into the dam’s hydro plant, making it impossible to restart.”

  • This winter has bashed the heck out of California roads

” . . . A greater percentage of precipitation coming in the form of rain instead of snow and irregular snow-melt cycles makes it more difficult for communities to capture water for public use.
“Instead of making its way into our faucets, the snow we have now could be washed away into the ocean . . . .””

TruthOut More Near-Disasters Like Oroville Are Very Likely in the Future, Say Experts

” . . . .There are a number of dams with similar spillway problems [as Oroville], or where the inflow can exceed what you can release as outflow out of the dam and that puts them in a dangerous situation. There’s some water purveyors that are looking at new water projects that would make it even worse, like the Merced Irrigation District, which wants to raise the emergency spillway at Exchequer Dam on the Merced River so that it could store more water, but that would further reduce their ability to manage the reservoir during a flood event like this.”

This North Coast Journal blog takes issue with Breitbart News story earlier this month about the Klamath River. . . .
” . . . The Klamath Project — featuring seven dams, a series of canals and pumping stations — was designed to divert water from the river into an irrigation system that allowed for the transformation of hundreds of thousands of acres of rangeland into farmland. The Klamath River Hydroelectric Project, meanwhile, included eight dams — including the four slated for removal — and, as its name attests, was aimed to providing cheap hydroelectric power to farmers and ranchers in the area. . . “ – (Has a good map.)

Atmospheric HAARP River Switches to “OFF” Over Oroville

22 02 2017

Leuren Moret: “They turned HAARP off today – almost no rain until the weekend. Jerry got his money from the Feds, and the state is wrecked, but not too wrecked to continue to bleed.”






The State of California map of “Current Reservoir Conditions”, indicates that on Feb. 20, 2017, 3 dams were nearly full, and over their historic capacities by large amounts: lake Oroville (80% full/116% above historic levels), lake Shasta (91%/127%), and San Pedro reservoir (98%/139%).  More than 53% of California’s dams and reservoirs were reported to be in bad condition before this catastrophic rainy season started. This map indicates statewide that all of the reservoirs are now full.
Source: Dept. of Water Resources, California Data Exchange Center (CDEC)
This is an EARTH image from (GFS/NCEP/US National Weather Service) data, of wind at the surface and the next 3 hour precipitation accumulation on Feb. 17, 2017, 23:00 PST.  Three moisture streams are seen on this map of the United States, and the two moisture streams on the left side of the map originate in the Pacific Ocean. 

The moisture stream in the center appears to be on a trajectory from the southwest towards the northeast crossing over the Central Valley of California.  It intersects at 90 degrees, a larger but shorter weather front trajectory traveling from the southeast to the northwest.  The larger weather front appears to have been widened and shaped to fit the Central Valley, then directed north through the valley of California. The intersection of the two weather fronts increased the moisture load and the windspeed that concentrated over the region of Oroville dam as reflected in the rainfall map. 

As the trajectory traveled north of Oroville, it was intercepted by a weather front traveling east (off of the Pacific), that clocked it to the east leaving a semi-circle.  The targeted intersection of the two trajectories over Oroville dam, resulted in the highest total precipitation in the region, at the headwaters of the Oroville watershed on Feb. 17-18.


This chart represents the Lake Oroville water storage levels for the water year Oct. 1, 2016 – Sept. 30, 2017.
Note that water storage was declining from Oct. 1, 2015 into early Dec. 2015.  A sudden exponential increase in water storage levels continued from early December into February, threatening to cause a total Oroville dam failure statewide catastrophe, not only at Oroville dam but across the state.

The normal historic water storage (soft green) pattern in the background indicates that the rainfall pattern since Dec. 2016 is not only offscale, but also unprecedented.  No dams in the the United States were designed to withstand such bizarre weather patterns, nor physical forces caused by unprecedented exponential rainfall patterns.

This is very strong evidence of a HAARP driven event.

On Feb. 10, 2017, the two largest dams in California and a third dam were at, or nearly maximum capacity, and nearly 50% above historic levels: Oroville dam (100%/149%), Shasta Dam (96%/138%), Don Pedro (97%/140%). 
Just one week later, on Feb. 18, Oroville dam had been overfilled, and both the spillway and emergency spillway had been badly damaged so severely, that backcutting by large water releases had caused so much erosion close to the dam that it severely endangered the integrity of the dam.  The Shasta and Don Pedro dam were also in danger but not as damaged as Oroville dam.  The lowering of the water levels in all three dams reduced the danger of further erosion due to overflows: Oroville dam (81%/118%), Shasta Dam (90%/126%), Don Pedro (97%/139%).  However, the dams were still threatened by at least three more storms on the way. 

Nearly all the dams on this map are now full, and many are damaged before the recent storms. 

Many of these dams were built in the 1960’s when Governor Edmund “Pat” Brown introduced the State Water Project (SWP) and California Aqueduct, creating a new agriculture infrastructure for farmers in California.  Unfortunately the 1500 dams in California have not been maintained, despite the present Gov. Jerry Brown, son of Pat Brown, has received $25 billion a year during his two terms to upgrade and maintain the dams.  Brown said he “spent it on the migrants”.


Where did all this weather engineering come from, now that there is evidence that many of these recent “natural disasters” have been engineered and manipulated by the Pentagon as well as private corporations. 

It turns out that two Calif. water agency bulletins published in 1957 and 1965 reveal that two governors of Calif. were involved.  Weather engineering began in Calif. in 1951, under Governor Goodwin Knight, a Mormon from a wealthy mining family in Utah.  The second bulletin came out in 1965, during the Governorship of Pat Brown.  Both Governors had close ties to the Jesuits.  The Mormons were created by the Jesuits, and Irish American Governor Brown had ties to the Jesuits through the Catholic Church.  The Jesuits represent the NWO, and are architects of food modification (Monsanto, GMO, Nestle, Archer Daniel Midlands, and Cargill), they control the CIA, and the Pentagon, the uranium business, intelligence, international trade, shipping, communications, the Red Cross, 10% of Congress are Jesuit linked, all of Obama’s intel chiefs and and the CIA were/are Jesuit linked.  Weather modification is also of interest to them. 


The question now is whether or not the weather patterns and modification observed in California since early December 2016 was man-made.  The answer can be found by establishing the scientific patterns of natural events, and comparing them to the patterns of events that seem questionable, unprecedented, and off-scale. 
Below is a graph of the Oroville dam historical average – total reservoir capacity for 1989-2017, a period of 28 years. 
Source: OroVille Dam” 11 Secrets They Are Not Telling You. PLUS Video Footage Exclusive (February 14, 2017) YouTube – https://youtu.be/8etbr_eCV48

During that period of nearly 30 years, the reservoir capacity varied depending on climate changes, but the overall yearly pattern for variations in monthly weather are very similar, with the exception of water year 2017. 

Not only does the present water year seem questionable, it is unprecedented, off-scale, and violates the scientific constraints of meteorology.  It is another example of “how to wreck the environment” a chapter in a 1968 book called UNLESS PEACE COMES, edited by Nigel Calder, a science publisher.  Here is the chapter written by Gordon MacDonald, the geophysicist who developed the tectonic warfare and weather modification applications for HAARP.  Please read this chapter, it will change your life and perception of HAARP:


“How to Wreck the Environment”, Gordon MacDonald (1968)          

The Federal Govt. has given Gov. Jerry Brown $25 billion a year for the upgrading and repair of California’s dams and reservoirs.  Where did that money go?  Governor Brown said he spent it on migrants.  I don’t believe him.  They don’t look any better off than they did before he spent $175 billion on them in 7 years.
