Riled allies
Supervisor, Oroville group challenge dam relicensure

This article was published on 04.11.19.


. . .They’re pressing their case with a united front. Last Friday (April 5), during the county’s annual legislative trip to Washington, D.C., Connelly hand-delivered a letter and documentation to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) expressing opposition to the dam’s relicensure. That followed an electronic filing by the alliance.

In submitting this notice of protest, which also indicates their intent to intervene in the proceedings, the local parties informed FERC and the dam’s operator, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), that the agencies could face a formal challenge if concerns aren’t addressed. Connelly’s letter cites a petition signed by nearly 9,500 people.

DWR, contacted by email, declined to comment.

Oroville Dam’s 50-year license expired in 2006. Since 2007, DWR has operated the facility on a series of one-year extensions. Butte County has taken the state to court, most recently for damages from the spillway incident (see “DA sues DWR over dam,” Downstroke, Feb. 18, 2018).

In this action, Connelly isn’t acting as a county official per se. He told the CN&R that “the county’s official position is parallel” to his—that is, the lack of recreational tourism opportunities exacerbates the financial drain on local government—but he’s waging his fight “out of a passion to help the local people.”

In the FERC filing, which he’s posted online (see infobox), Connelly excerpted state and federal documents dating as far back as 1961, when construction began. Work finished in 1967, with the dam opening in 1968.

“It’s a little bit boring reading,” he told the CN&R, “but anyone who reads the history of the facility will understand, from the beginning, how they boondoggled us. ‘Hey, if you vote for this [project’s water bonds], you’ll have Disneyland, you’ll have all these tourists, you’ll make all this money.’. . .

…The spillway cost $2 billion, including overtime and change orders from Kiewit. How do you fix it? You can’t caulk that subterranean high pressure water from the top of the spillway; it must be caulked from the bottom, at the foundation. What can they do?…

They spent TWO BILLION DOLLARS and it'a still ain't worth a shit!

Oroville Operations and Main Spillway Update


. . .Since Oroville’s main spillway gates closed last week, a team of DWR engineers have been performing a thorough inspection of the main spillway to evaluate its performance – all the scaffolding and activity you are witnessing is related to those efforts. Engineers will continue to be visible on the main spillway performing these inspections.

Local temps into the mid-80s beginning next week.

Sierra snowpack over 150% of average.

Lake only 30 feet from he top.

DWR idiots should be drawing the elevation down right now in anticipation of snowmelt.

If we get a warm, wet Pacific storm that snow will melt quickly and it will be panic all over again just like in 1997.
