So Crunch....you said you lived on the edge of the innundation zone. Was that for a full lake? Now that it is down 50 feet, are you above the disaster zone?
 Quoting: Prayandprepare000


The inundation maps are based on a full 900'elevation, fair weather and complete catastrophic dam failure. Instant release of the total reservoir storage (like the St. Francis Dam disaster).

Lower reservoir elevation coupled with a gradual release like a slowly failing spillway would reduce the inundation area, as the water would have more time to move downstream instead of spreading out.

The only scenario that concerns me would be a wet season catastrophic failure at full elevation.

The river would already be high, creaks and streams overflowing and the ground already saturated. That would increase the inundation area significantly.
 Quoting: Crunch62


Hum. I don't know what to say. The thing is, if they don't dismantle the dam before winter and you get pummelled with rain, and they are afraid to open the gates but the HPP can't keep up with inflow, then you might get that catastrophic failure at full elevation. I don't know what to do but pray for everybody, and I know a drought isn't good for CA but maybe for this dam it would be a mercy.

 Quoting: Prayandprepare000


The Emergency Spillway is intended to prevent the dam from overtopping and thus preventing a catastrophic failure of the dam. However, there are issues with the dam itself and the main spillway that could cause such a failure. Settlement, seepage, etc.

The drought-flood cycle in California is hard on earthen dams. Years of drought and low water levels allow fill materials to shrink and crack. Then a flood season and high inflow puts tremendous pressure on the dry, shrunken structure.

Proper flood storage procedures by DWR could reduce these impacts, but they have proven to be incapable of proper reservoir management in the past.

It is interesting to note that evacuations were ordered in 1997 because there were concerns the ES MIGHT be overtopped due to high inflow. Thankfully, no overtopping occurred, but Oroville, Marysville and Yuba City were evacuated for days.

In 2017, officials KNEW the ES was going to be overtopped, but evacuations were not issued until AFTER the ES overtopped and the erosion (that a child could have predicted) was occurring.

Why the disparity?

I have absolutely no trust in CA DWR. I have earned that right.

 Quoting: Crunch62

the catastrophic failure will likely be in the seam between the dam and the abutment that has the spillways on it... But it could blow on that abutment too.. or flat in the middle of the dam itself.

In other news, the reservoir elevation is down to about 828 feet. Still churning out through the Hyatt Power Plant.

A far cry from what DWR Spokesperson Erin Mellon stated back in April (?) about keeping the lake at full 900' elevation all summer.

I'm still trying to find a link to that statement. It seems they all disappeared.

It is highly possible the southern SA is going to move big time.

a few days ago now.. there was a shit.. words tonight.. but a 7 hours recording.. of a type I used to watched years ago.. a tremor type recording.. on Cajon pass. This is ominous. This type of "tremor" at this level precedes major quakes in a couple weeks or so..

Last time.. was 2 weeks before those last quakes that are still rattling near Ridgecrest I think it is... and that one before Ridgecrest was not as heavy as the one a few days ago on Cajon Pass.

I was going to include Mellon's statements in a reply to DWR's email, but but they seem to have been scrubbed. I can't find her comments anywhere.

Look up the story of the St. Francis Dam Disaster. Another story of greed in the form of William Mulholland.

On March 12th, 1928, the St Francis Dam failed suddenly and completely, dooming many downstream in the Santa Clarita River valley, all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
My dad was born in July, 1927, but he had researched the flood after moving to California in 1957. I can recall as a kid his commentary as we were driving around Ventura County in So Cal.

" The flood came through here. This is what the flood did."

The evidence of the flood damage was still visible in the '60s and '70s.

As a teenager, I spent a lot of time riding motorcycles at the Indian Dunes Motorcycle Park. It was located right in the Santa Clarita River Bottoms, and displayed lots of damage from the St. Francis Dam flood, although I didn't realize it at the time.

Lots of twisted and destroyed railroad tracks, with new lines built right next to them.

My friend's dad was the manager, and we would load our bikes and go to work with him, riding for free during the week. This was also where the TV series 'Baa Baa Black Sheep' was filmed, so we would often have Corsairs and fake Zeros cranking and banking over our heads while we were riding.

A favorite spot of mine to ride was the river right below a sheer cliff. This spot was featured in a few movies later on, such as 'Uncommon Valor' and was the place where Vic Morrow and some juvenile extras died during the filming of 'Twilight Zone: The movie'.

I did not realize until many years later that the cliff was formed during the St. Francis Dam flood.

The area has all returned to farmland now. But the scars remain.

Floods change the landscape and memories.

Re: California's Lake Oroville Main Spillway Severly Damaged/Eroded. Oroville Dam's Recently Reconstructed Main Spillway Fundamentally Flawed
The reservoir is down to 823'
Only 10 feet to go before the base of the spillway gates are clear of water.

It will be interesting to see what happens when the gates are dry. More repair? More construction?

Time is running out before the rain comes.

DWR lies.
