hmmm, slayer, that's interesting as I read that the dam was DWR/State of California's responsibility 100%. ACE not even mentioned. From what he was saying, they claim 20% of the water, because of the Feds having given 20% of the funding, but no claims on responsibility for building of, repairs or maintenance?  So it seems they do have an interest in the dam, just not in any construction way. 

BTW they had a couple minor earthquakes in the Oroville area today.  Not what they need. Really makes me wonder why? The details indicate right at surface.

 editing to add this video, in the first few seconds this guy tells you about a quarry not to far from the dam.  No wonder a couple surface eqs today, could it be from blasting at this quarry, to get those rocks they are using in the holes of the dam?  What on earth are they thinking, considering the conditions?   Tx Reddwolf

anybody seen the bags of rocks the helicopters are placing in the holes ? 1 at a time. I've seen that they are 1 ton each. rather small. am i being silly when i say that they appear to be bags of grit to churn up those holes when the water hits them ? 

here is a take on the army corp of engineers...

I personally think the earth is moving around the dam, sliding, as it's saturated with water

This is land, N. of the main spillway, showing cracks which to me indicates that ground movement. Tx to Reddwolf and Jamie W

I don't know folks, but we can only hope for the best from here on out, nothing I've seen them do, so far, has impressed me much. The National Guard has arrived in the area. I hope that baby holds. Following is a link to an image today showing how muddy water is backing up to the foot of the dam itself, where the hydroelectric turbines are supposedly under water and unusable.

From the following information, it seems they expected the quakes from the weight of the eater they removed from the dam.

USGS records small Earthquakes near #OrovilleDam

Anthony Watts  Feb. 16, 2017

"Two small Earthquakes were recorded near Lake Oroville in the last 24 hrs, which appear to be a result of the fast lake level changes, and the subsequent release of pressure from water weight. Note the two yellow dots on the USGS map below:

That's convenient.

And now, global warming brings lots of rain. Before ( up until a couple of months ago), global warming was bringing a thousand year drought to California.

Not good I agree, but at the end of the day SHIT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, whether natural or manmade and the only logical thing to do is to get out of way.

Officials ban recreational drone use over Oroville Dam spillway

Christopher Hooks   Feb. 17, 2017

 

"The Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary ban on the private use drones and aircraft over the Oroville Dam Emergency Spillway to allow crews to work without interference.

In a press conference Thursday, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said if anyone was found flying recreational drones in the no-fly zone, that person would be prosecuted "to the fullest extent of the law."

"I understand the interest," Honea said Wednesday, while announcing the restrictions. "I understand that people want to use those drones to get pictures and video. The problem is, if they’re up there flying those drones, it interferes with our air operations.

snip   tweet

The no-fly restrictions, which will end May 13, affect a five-mile radius and 3,000-feet altitude around the Oroville Dam Spillway incident, according to the FAA."

Oroville Dam ‘is holding up’ -- Heavy Downpours Likely to Test Repairs to Oroville Dam Spillway - Updated at 12:15PM, February 17, 2017

Posted By: Bob
Date: Saturday, 18-Feb-2017 01:06:49

 

Oroville Dam ‘is holding up’

(“We’re cautiously optimistic.” - spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection)

,
" . . . . . The weather brings more worries for communities south of Oroville Dam. Rainfall over the next seven days could total more than 12 inches.

The threat level has been reduced for residents living near the dam, but Butte County officials on Wednesday advised those returning to their homes to “remain vigilant and prepared.”

Helicopters dropped rocks and concrete into the erosion area every minute and a half late Wednesday night in “a manner that kind of glues the areas of concern,” said Bill Croyle, acting director of the California Department of Water Resources.

Erosion was a concern in three sites, officials said Thursday. The first site has been completely filled, while the other two sites are 25% and 69% filled.

“The dam is holding up, it’s structurally sound,” said Jay Smith, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The Oroville Lake level has dipped to 869 feet, 32 feet below the top. “Everything is going well,” Smith told CNN, adding that “we’re cautiously optimistic.”

But Hennen, the CNN meteorologist, said, “The next week of storms could potentially bring hundreds of billions of gallons of water into Lake Oroville, adding pressure back onto the already compromised structure of the concrete spillway and emergency spillway next to Oroville Dam.”

So far the dam is holding, i hope it continues, for everyone's sake, but every river, levee, and dam in Calif is stretched to the limit, with flooding taking place all over Calif., and sinkholes forming. There's also a dam in So. Calif., at risk, outside Bakersfield.

New Photos Show Damage To Oroville Dam As Massive Storm Pounds California

A new report from Fox News on Sunday indicates that if the Oroville dam fails, residents who live in harms way will most likely will be advised in time which adds to the mounting stress as new storms pound California.

From Fox News:

Communities immediately downstream of California’s Lake Oroville dam would not receive adequate warning or time for evacuations if the 770-foot-tall dam itself — rather than its spillways — were to abruptly fail, the state water agency that operates the nation’s tallest dam repeatedly advised federal regulators a half-decade ago.

Reuters is now reporting that large parts of Northern California are being place on a flood advisory as new storms pound Northern California

Government severely misjudged strength of Oroville emergency spillway, sparking a crisis

Feb. 19. 2017    Bettina Boxall

Capturedamage.JPG

"Bill Croyle stood in front of an aerial photo of Lake Oroville and swept his hand across the top of the emergency spillway that was helping drain water out of the brimming reservoir.

“Solid rock. All this is rock,” Croyle, acting director of the Department of Water Resources, said with an air of confidence at the Feb. 11 briefing.

The flows over the concrete lip of the unpaved spillway were tiny compared with what it was designed to handle. Oroville’s first-ever emergency spill was going smoothly.

Some 27 hours later, state officials told Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea that erosion was chewing away at the base of the spillway’s concrete lip. It was on the verge of collapse, threatening to send a towering wall of flood water surging through downstream communities, endangering tens of thousands of people. Honea ordered a mass evacuation."

5 Oroville Dam workers fired after posting pictures on social media   <<shows the pictures they posted

In the following picture chat mate pointed out steps diagonally going up to top of spillway (upper right on pic)

http://vegassports-odds.com/2017/02/evacuations-ordered-due-to-oroville-dam-spillway-emergency/

now in this picture, those steps appear to be gone, they also announced that they were concerned about a crack in the bedrock, and if you magnify the picture you can see a crack, also mentioned movement of 8 mm in some spot, and for workers to stay calm

http://imgur.com/FVl2QI7

I hope this dam holds together, but there sure are a lot of concerns.  Most of the water is not going down the spillway, but outside of it creating passages of i's own.  The gates apparently have blockages of debris, the plume indicates that water is blowing up through the ground between the main spillway and the emer. spillway. Cracks in bedrock, and movement. The ground is saturated and that water running at force and digging it's own path, is not good.   All Calif is flooding, and friends in Vacaville said they are evacuating the town. Vacaville is about an hour W of Sacramento. FEMA setting up at Travis AFB which is in Fairfield, a short distance from Vacaville. Good luck to all, I hope it holds, because if it doesn't this will affect all of us, and where is BROWN??  I have always thought he was the one, now I'm convinced.

This snip is one I took from SeanD's live cast. Recall people were watching a plume and could not figure out where it was. In this you can see the main spillway on the right, and on the left, the emer. spillway. I noticed a white looking spot on the hill between the two spillways and wondered IF this could be where the plume was located, as to me it looks like water running down hill. If you open it in photoview and enlarge it, you can see it better. It's positioned between 2 high power lines.

I think this image will bring home the real situation at Oroville Dam.  We all know that dam is severely compromised, and all rivers, levees are full. I wasn't aware there were 9 reservoirs that ultimately feed into Oroville.  This is like a house of cards, just waiting to fall, and the one at the top, Almanor, holds 1/2 as much water as Oroville, itself.

WHAT ARE THEY HIDING? Per GeoEngineering Watch reader, 5 #Oroville workers were reportedly fired for posting photos on social media sites

Very strong winds and heavy rain here in my area of Mendocino County. I saw a brief one line post elsewhere that the Oroville spillway with the water cascading off to the right of the spillway up from the bottom. Nothing coming out at the bottom because it's diverted sideway(s). And a brief allusion to several other dams topping. Maybe the Don Pedro? Also highway 5 shut down. The brief post stated this amount of rain for the season is unprecedented.

Further censorship is occurring. Five workers at Oroville were fired because they posted pics on social sites against the terms of the contract they signed with the private contractor. Seems it's public money and a public dam and a public problem, but no public allowed. Which might explain why I cannot find any images of the bags of rocks being placed in the hole at the emergency spillway. There are pics of helicopters in the air, and on the ground at the staging areas. We see the bags lined up ready to go, but no pics of the holes being filled in. Odd. Now we know…censorship.

It looks like they are using a different tactic. I've seen this more int he last week or so. They are using a transmitter west of Sacramento. Looks like Mt. Vaca, just outside of Vacaville, CA. It looks like they are punching their artificial river in the face. It appears to be migrating the moisture away from the Sacramento and central valley. Or at least diverting it somewhat. Looks like they're trying fence off the valley.

Yeah, I was just looking at the Intellicast dollar. There is a hole in the "return" from Redding down to Yuba City. But it is raining in the mountains east of this, which includes the mountains that feed Oroville. I see where Interstate 5, the main artery from Southern California to the north into Oregon, is flooded out in many places with traffic completely backed up. Currently it is poring cats and dogs here, which is about 90 miles or so west of Oroville.

Reservoirs feeding Lake Oroville are filled to brim as more rain rolls in

Oroville Lake Down 52 Feet, but 9 Upstream Reservoirs to Flood

Chriss W. Street           Feb. 21, 2017

"Although the California Department of Water Resources is claiming Oroville Dam is safer because the water level has fallen by 52 feet, that feat was largely accomplished by over-filing 9 upstream reservoirs that are all expected to flood as another Pineapple Express storm-train brings 48 hours of heavy rain through Wednesday.

The last winter storm caused an evacuation of about 200,000 people downstream from Lake Oroville due to the threat of a catastrophic failure of the dam.

Although most Americans have been told that the fissure in the side of the dam has been stabilized by opening up the spillway to drain the lake, and helicopters have dropped huge bags of rocks in a crack, the water flow into Oroville Lake has been restricted by overfilling the upstream reservoirs.

The nine State Water Project and PG&E earthen reservoirs on the Upper Feather River Watershed that feed directly into Lake Oroville were already at maximum capacity prior to the new storms. This next storm is expected to bring 1-3 inches of rain in the valleys. But the Central Sierras are expecting 10 inches of snow and rain over the next 7 days."

For the time being it is holding, keeping fingers crossed.
