Minor doesn’t matter. They vibrated that dam to death back in 2017. And the new work didn’t solve the low vibrations that we were discussing back in 2017.

These folks are a danger to society.
See the good. Prepare for the bad. And enjoy right now.

Not to be alarmist, but… Unusual seismic activity registering in and around #OrovilleDam in the past 48 hours or so. It may, or may not, have something to do with the unusually large catchment of water at present.

Oroville Dam Makes its own Earthquakes



Edited AGAIN

1) It could be the swing in water elevation similar to the article

2) The world has had a ton of EQ in the last 24 hours so maybe somehow it is picking up on that much like Yellowstone echos larger quakes?

3) It could be reading settling and struggling within the dam as water works into new recent paths?



ALL ideas are my unprofessional speculation.

Remeber a few weeks ago when they opened the spillway? If you did, then perhaps you remember the "Argyle" patterns in the water. That told me that the dam kis way beyond being phukked.

As soon as they saw the "Argyle" patterns, they closed the spillway.

Coincidence? HELL NO!

Review Time- the Green Spot, and dire warnings from Dr Bea.

It has to be stressed: The seepage at the green spot through the earth dam is a serious problem. It has not been stabilized or grouted as far as we know. The spillway is separated from the earth dam by a rocky hill, and there is water moving through that hill, which is another problem. We also do not know if any of it was grouted, but it certainly needs more.

Read the quote in bold below from Dr Robert Bea. The dam can fail on a summer day with no rain and no spillway usage. The dam is not safe. This is one of the premier experts in the USA talking. If we make it to summer without using a spillway, the DAM CAN STILL FAIL.

*A UC Berkeley Engineering professor emeritus, one of the nation’s foremost forensic engineers, and the founder of Berkeley’s Center for Catastrophic Risk Management (CCRM), Bea had long been worried about the design and management of the dam.

Original Report:
[link to drive.google.com (secure)]

see pages 15-17 for the green spot, which was a structural failure from the beginning.

* What’s particularly worrisome is evidence we found indicating this seepage has been going on for about 50 years. DWR says that it’s just some ‘natural springs,’ and that’s it’s no cause for worry. But a ‘natural spring’ in that area would have to flow uphill, which runs counter to the laws of physics. And understand this: Any seepage through an earth-fill dam is extremely worrisome.

[link to alumni.berkeley.edu (secure)]

*Furthermore, it wouldn’t necessarily take a tremendous amount of rain and uncontrolled releases as we saw in February to trigger such a failure. It could happen on a bright, sunny summer’s day. The situation is that serious.

You have to understand- it can fail anytime. It is not safe. DWR is ignoring the national expert on this, and not doing what needs to be done. There is more to this problem than using or not using the spillway. Nobody beneath can breath a sigh of relief if we make it to summer without using the new spillways.
