Has the rain that was supposed to break the dam happened yet?
Is it still on or are people just grasping to last bits of doom bonering?

Does Wal-Mart stock snorkles? Might want to send a few dozen their way. They can buddy up.

why was the dam built where it was instead of further east along the yangtze river, like near the curve about guanzhou island or build three smaller dams near dengpanzhou island.

Well, shit, that's terrible.
How do they build a giant dam and then it immediately threatens the well being of civilization because it cant handle lots and lots of rain?
Wouldn't one make sure that the dam can handle lots and lots of rain so it doesn't threaten the well being of civilization?

I'm ashamed of my doom chub.

Re: "Rumors Of Structural Faults " - CHINA'S THREE GORGES DAM
I have “friend info”. It’s several days old and i dont really care to get shit on by he losers on here so fuck you in advance.

I have a Filipino friend going back almost 20 years. He is an structural engineer and specializes in concrete mixing. He has worked on and off at the 3G dam for 25 years and just got back from making repairs on the dam in May.

The company he is with is based out of Manila and has been asked to return immediately. They have been told that the engineers operating the dam have been unable to shut down at least two of the spillways.

He thinks the problem is with the chutes under the dam that feed the spillways. It may be as simple as lowering the water levels enough to reduce the water pressure which will allow the chute clamp to shut off the flow of water to spillway.

Otherwise; they can’t shut one or more down and the dam will drain out.

But he did not believe, based on what they have been told, that central core had been damaged... just possible damage to some part of the chutes that attach to the intake and spillway.

Also said they had been asked to comment on water flows from spillways and he said it was abnormal indicating damage to the chute itself or debris in the chute.

I have mentioned in the past of being shown images of the dam - about 15 years ago. They were taken by this guy. There were foot wide vertical cracks on the walls of the Spillways. Several. Ran the entire length and were not even with each other... some parts of the wall jut out a foot or more. They have never been repaired.
