all seems back up now.... lots of equipment gone from view on the top view... paving I guess or something.
Pray for the SAFETY of TRUMP and Family going forward

111:1.6 (1217.1) Mind is the cosmic instrument on which the human will can play the discords of destruction, or upon which this same human will can bring forth the exquisite melodies of God identification and consequent eternal survival. The Adjuster bestowed upon man is, in the last analysis, impervious to evil and incapable of sin, but mortal mind can actually be twisted, distorted, and rendered evil and ugly by the sinful machinations of a perverse and self-seeking human will. Likewise can this mind be made noble, beautiful, true, and good—actually great—in accordance with the spirit-illuminated will of a God-knowing human being. [link to www.urantia.org (secure)]


Our Father, You who have dwelt within us in this incarnation, we give Thee thanks for Your perpetual presence and the continuous guidance of Your Light within, even in those times when we could not see or know. How we bless this our experience acknowledging that where we are now is a credit to the extent that we allowed you to manifest within and through our lives. We glorify in the sanctuary of our inner light as we take these last steps that will gain us entry into our new world. Be with us even and ever more that our inner awareness may assume a greater dimension of knowing and purpose as we transcend and transition into new grounds that will earn us and offer us opportunities to further bridge the divide between physical and spiritual. As we bid goodbye, we do so in love and gratitude and we look forward to creating spiritual sentiments going forward, that which last eternally. From AA Uriel

They wasted no time in dropping the reservoir level in direct contrast to DWR public statements by Erin Mellon, et al.

Now that the water level is below the bottom of the gates, the Hyatt Powerplant outflow has been reduced.

Coincidence? I don't think so.

The clock is ticking. We are heading onto the deluge season.
 Quoting: Crunch62


Haven't been on the thread in a while so I thought I'd check and see whats going on.

I used to houseboat for a week every September with a group of friends on Oroville. It was VERY common for the lake to drop 1-2 feet over night. We had to back the boat off every day and re-secure the mooring otherwise we'd get stuck on the shore.

I would be concerned if the lake level wasn't dropping this time of year.

It certainly is common for the lake to drop this time of year. My concern is due to DWR stating, 'We are going to keep it full all summer. There is no concern with having a 900' elevation, as we have done in past years."

Then a week later, they began dropping the elevation via the power plant as fast as possible, without using the main spillway.

Meanwhile, work is continuing on the spillway gates (the gates DWR stated didn't need any work).

Lies and deception. That is what our tax dollars are buying us.

perhaps they are draining the lake to account for the soon to be wet season. it's already snowed in the sierras and if the rains come often this winter, oroville will need to be lowered to accommodate what's on the way.

None that I can think of. Local stations around here usually hire the lowest common denominator. I rarely watch TV anyway.

Hello Dam watchers!

Well, made it through the rough patch obviously and that is a good thing.

So now, the lake level is below the bottom of the spillway gates. Opportunity to work on them now. Does anyone know if the DWR actually is doing any work on the gates while they can?

I believe they have been working on the gate structure all along. There have been workers and equipment in that area continuously.

I noticed yesterday on the top cam that at least a couple of the gate hoist motors had been reconnected to power. They may have raised at least some of the gates to perform work, but it would be difficult to confirm that without a boat.

Yeah I remember work crews always being there even when the lake level was extremely high. What they could actually do as far as any real work when it was? I'd say it's doubtful they could do much that would matter.

With the lake as low as it now, it's a different story. With no water on the back side of the gates, the opportunity is now that they could do real seal repair and far more significant work that is undoubtedly needed.

Whether they will or not, it appears that remains to be seen.

I hope they take advantage while they can.
