A view of the Lake Oroville main spillway in Butte County, California. The spillway gates are designed with seals to minimize leakage around the edges of the gate. This modest leakage is beneficial with respect to reducing friction when the gates are operated.

I live close to a dam that was completed on December 5, 1941

(Cherokee lake in Tennessee) It is only a few feet from the top and there is not a drop coming from the gates. They have opened the gates a few times in the past year and I always go to see that because it is quote a sight. When they close the gates there is not a drop of water leaking.

West Coast faces heat wave this week as wildfires rage

(CNN)A heat wave that could break records is forecast for some parts of the West Coast, where dry conditions are raising fears of more wildfires in areas still reeling from last year's deadly blazes.

An excessive heat watch will be in effect Monday into Tuesday for portions of California and Arizona, said CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar. Temperatures in the border areas of the two states and in the valley region from Redding to Bakersfield will reach triple digits.

 Quoting: sseess


Wonder how much snowpack is left in the mountains above Oroville, Shasta and Folsom dams? Oroville and Sacramento areas are supposed to be well above 100 this week with Redding area near 110. With temperatures that hot there's sure to be very rapid snowmelt.

Well that's kinda true in a stupid way.

Water pressure holds the gates closed. It's how they are built. Obviously a leak is a reduction in over all pressure against the gates.

So it's true but not the way they make it seem.

That's my opinion about it.



Besides, there should be no need to rely on leaking water to operate the gate. That statement is just completely unprofessional.

I think they are desperate.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77013656

I'm not so sure about that. Granted it would make sense to do that, have the gates basically go through the structure, Gates are larger, water pressure pushes the gates against a curved surface, helps to create a seal.

I'm just not sure that's how these gates are done. I think they may ride on a curved surface on the inside (spillway side) and the trunnions bear the extra load of any water pressure when the lake is high enough for there to be any.

If so, they ain't built like the Folsom gates in this video and I'm pretty sure they are.

See if I can find more info on that.

[link to www.youtube.com (secure)]

Also I believe the seals actually are more or less "inflated" by a hydraulic fluid into a bladder and press outward to a sealing surface on the side when under pressure. Release pressure, loss of seal, but you would only do that when actuating the gates.

BAHAHAHAHHAHA! You know some doofus in cubical wrote that crap, maybe they will get shamed enough to get their heads outta asses and think twice before writing dumbass comments like everyone reading them is a bunch of retards just to pimp the company line.

The gates were designed to seal when the seals would be activated. If they worked as advertised? no leaks. You release pressure on seals when you are going to open the gates, get some leak water lube derp.

THAT is how they are/were supposed to work. Whether they ever have or not? I don't know, but they don't work now.

If they were smart they would just say something like, "Look we know we have leaks, obviously. Don't worry they aren't doing any damage, they aren't to get worse in the near future and we're going to fix the seals in the fall when the lake goes down. The spillway can handle 10,000x the amount of water leaking now and the water on the spillway actually helps the cement cure. We got Johnny "Seals" Johnson coming in to handle it and he's the best in da biz. So don't worry, it's no BFD and we're on it like a fat chick on Keto, so chillax brotato chips, we got this"

I would write the BEST press releases!

The pressure from lake side puts force on the gates. The direction of force wants to make the gates move in a direction which closes the gates.

It's because the gates meet lake water below the axis of rotation.

You're correct about the inflatable seals. But the gate design allows lake water pressure to hold them closed.

 Quoting: Nonentity

Because of the shape of the tainter gate design yes that is true. The shape itself and the trunnion axis in relation to the water pushes the gates more or less downward.

But, I think the other poster was saying that the water helps the entire seal. Like if you had to patch a hole in a boat. You'd put the patch on the outside so the water would help hold it in place, not the inside where it fight against the water pressure trying to push it off.

That was the impression I got anyway, I could be wrong.

I dreamed today it was something that happens to Lake Almanor that causes Oroville to finally collapse or overflow and breach.
 Quoting: shake it


I have had similar..
 Quoting: ALL IS ONE IS ALL



imo the BIGGEST risk for the remainder of THIS year is now the risk of an Earthquake damaging the Gates /Weir at Oroville OR such an event causing damage to the dam /spillway at Lake Almanor.

Oroville has plenty of capacity now to handle the STEADY snow melt that is now going to occur over the next 12 weeks, unless the Hyatt Power Plant has to go off line for some reason.

(remember they can't run water through that power plant UNLESS they have an electrical load on the turbines - so a major EQ that downs the transmissions lines leaving the power plant area, even if the damage is 50 miles away, WOULD force a shutdown of the Hyatt power plant - separate and apart from any damage that might or might not occur to the the Dam Structure itself).

Most here probably didn't notice but last week there were FOUR small EQ's up at Lake Almanor, including one right under the lake itself, the other's on it's periphery by just a couple of miles or so (one east, one west, one just downstream from the dam). Crunch has previously mentioned the EQ's occuring up there including a significant one right at the dam itself a few years ago, with multiple aftershocks at each end of the dam after that quake.

Even a limited breach of Lake Almanor would have HUGE consequences for Oroville, "IF" Oroville's lake level is HIGH when it happened. With an average surface area (at high lake levels) of about 16,500 acres for Oroville it would only take about 85,000+ acre feet to raise the lake 5'. 100,000 acre feet would raise Oroville 6'+-.

(currently Lake Almanor is holding about 1,100,000 acre feet of water - a major breach of the dam there would probably allow up to 1/4 to 1/2 of that water to drain out, AND there is no ability to impound any large amounts of water as it comes down the North Fork of the Feather River into Lake Oroville - though it would be a multi hour process for that water to travel down the LONG and STEEP river gorge, from Lake Almanor to Oroville, probably 5 to 12 hours)

Next winter "IF" they get a year with extended WINTER rain events in the watershed AGAIN ... then the Oroville Dam /Spillway /Weir complex may be put to the test again. For the moment the risk for the remainder of THIS year is imo really via a major outside event happening.

Looks like there's a fire down south of the spillway, few miles at least away.

Hope no one is in any real danger.

If they need some extra fire fighting water, I know where they can get some!

PG&E restoring power after intentional shut-offs affect 20,500 customers

Pacific Gas and Electric Co. field crews began restoring power Sunday to approximately 20,500 customers in Butte and Yuba counties after the utility shut off electricity because of gusty winds and dry weather conditions.

They are going to shit on people after they got blamed for that fire.

Oh yeah it's Dry and windy? we'll have to turn the power off, soooo sorry. Give us a call, we'll be on the PG&E Yacht. It's the "RAW POWER", that 80ft Sunseeker with the hot topless babes on the front deck parked off of St Barts. We'll be sure to get right back to you, meanwhile enjoy the 17th century.
