Re: California's Lake Oroville Main Spillway Severly Damaged/Eroded. New Spillway Now Being Used
The Oroville Lake usually tops out between the middle of April and the first of May (if you go back and look at it's historic fluctuations). We are already in Mid April, so at most there is ONLY two more weeks of rise left in the lake if this year's spring is a typical spring.

REMEMBER ... Rain in that part of California is SEASONAL, and they are about to hit the beginning of their DRY SEASON.

Snow Melt is ALREADY OCCURING ... sheesh, it has been sunny and well above freezing in much of the watershed for some time now. Where does anybody get the idea that the snow isn't melting yet?

NO substantial rain has hit the watershed for almost 2 weeks now (and what they have had only totaled 2/10 of an inch), which is further confirmation that the water going into the reservoir IS ALL Snow Melt!!

The dam operators have been holding the inflow/outflow numbers to a fairly steady 8 to 10,000 cf/s net inflow for a number of days now, which is creating a SLOW increase in the lake level. Barring a major rain event, which would also accelerate the snow melt, there is nothing in the cards which would cause a sudden rise in the lake level. (the hourly reports as to the lake level are screwed up at the moment and have been for several days now but the inflow /outflow numbers are in the range that they should be with the lack of rain in the watershed)

Due to the heavier than normal snow pack this year the Snow Melt runoff should continue for some additional time compared to a normal year ... which will also keep the lake level higher longer than in a normal year once it peaks later this month but that doesn't mean that the lake will rise rise rise after it's normal peaking time since they will continue to send down to Southern California and to the Delta at about 10,000 cf/s probably through most of the rest of the spring and summer.

Oroville has problems ... but unless there is either a massive rain event in the next 3 weeks, a failure of part of the gate structure, or a large earthquake, most of the risk has now passed for this year. Next year may be a different story, but for this year most of the risk has now passed.

By the way, I was the one who said that the high Sierras were not melting yet. Read that elsewhere. If I am wrong, my apologies.

We are not the only ones wondering about the sudden spillway shut off.

That's the thing. Even if the dam makes it through the snow melt this year the dam and anyone and thing downstream from it is still far from safe. If next winter is really wet and snowy say goodbye to the dam and anything downstream from it.

a rather impossible amount of water . Not buying your statement about Oroville.
There Can Be NO Peace in the Heart or Progress in the Mind unless one falls wholeheartedly in love with Truth and IDEALS of Eternal Realities.

Mankind is on the march toward a new and unrevealed planetary destiny.


"MY SPIRIT, YOU ARE OMNIPOTENT. YOUR NAME IS HOLY. MAY YOUR REALM BE INCARNATE IN ME. MAY YOUR POWER REVEAL ITSELF WITHIN ME, ON EARTH AND IN THE HEAVEN. GIVE ME TODAY MY DAILY BREAD, AND THUS, LET ME RECOGNIZE MY TRANSGRESSIONS AND ERRORS, AND I SHALL RECOGNIZE THE TRUTH. AND DO NOT LEAD ME INTO TEMPTATION AND CONFUSION, BUT DELIVER ME FROM ERROR. FOR YOURS IS THE REALM WITHIN ME AND THE POWER AND THE KNOWLEDGE FOREVER,
AMEN.


Wisdom is not given, it is earned, and experience is the bestower.

Rejoice, for the world of ABSOLUTE TRANSPARENCY approaches, and decisions will be made according to the purity of your motives, for the eye of the Divine is an all-seeing eye, capable of glimpsing every flutter of the soul, knowing every yearning of your being and – incredible though it may seem – supporting every aspect of your own DIVINE PLAN.


God-consciousness, as it is experienced by an evolving mortal of the realms, must consist of three varying factors, three differential levels of reality realization. There is first the mind consciousness—the comprehension of the idea of God. Then follows the soul consciousness—the realization of the ideal of God. Last, dawns the spirit consciousness—the realization of the spirit reality of God. By the unification of these factors of the divine realization, no matter how incomplete, the mortal personality at all times overspreads all conscious levels with a realization of the personality of God.
