    When potholes are neglected and come under water-cannon sand blasting fire...


    Photo taken Jan. 27 shows some type of damage or discoloration on the main Oroville Dam spillway at the spot where the structure began to break up on Feb. 7. Water had begun to flow down the spillway Jan. 13, but the amount was cut back on Jan. 20 before being increased again on Jan. 30.



    On Jan. 13 when water began to flow down the Oroville Dam spillway, an unusual wave or bubble pattern was visible at the location that became much more visible after spillway flows were cut back a week later.



    Feb. 8 photo shows the hole that opened the previous day in the main Oroville Dam spillway, starting at the location highlighted above.

    Interesting update today from tatoott1009 showing HAARP weather modification.
    He provides evidence indicating it's likely that perhaps because there has been so much focus on Oroville, the elite are modifying the weather so that Oroville will not be impacted.
    Wouldn't that be nice?

    New Drone Video | Spillway to resume 40-50k cfs Soon
    Lake Oroville Dam Updates | 3-12-17
    Disclosure Media

    Quote Published on Mar 12, 2017
    DWR expects to resume using the flood control spillway to discharge 40,000 cfs to 50,000 cfs, with operations dependent upon weather, lake inflow and other factors.

    The flood control spillway was last used February 27, and work has been underway to reinforce and protect it from further erosion when it is used again.
    Debris removal will continue this week. Approximately 990,000 cubic yards of sediment and debris below the Flood Control Spillway have been removed by crews working 24 hours per day.
    With inflows ranging from approximately 13,000 cfs and 19,000 cfs, Lake Oroville is at 861.3 feet elevation.

    So far they are dodging a bullet it the shape of excessive rain, warm higher elevations and/or significant earthquakes in the region have been the saving grace. An army of ants can create amazing structures and repair them if damage occurs but they are no match for



    Will fortunate events hold out? Stay tuned.

    Oroville Dam spillway flows to resume this week

    By Chico Enterprise-Record Staff Reports | Mercury News
    PUBLISHED: March 14, 2017 at 4:00 am |
    UPDATED: March 14, 2017 at 5:09 am


    Workers are seen on the slope Saturday of the Oroville Dam spillway in Oroville.

    Oroville – The Department of Water Resources is planning to resume flows this week through Oroville Dam’s damaged main spillway, and warns that Feather River flows will increase to 40,000-50,000 cubic feet per second.

    Flows Monday through the stretch of the Feather River past downtown Oroville were 5,200 cfs, DWR said, with another 8,500 cfs entering the river at the Afterbay outlet downstream from town.

    In a press release, DWR said the spillway releases will resume “on or around March 17.”

    Lake Oroville is rising slowly as runoff and snowmelt is flowing into the lake faster than water can be released through the Hyatt Powerhouse under the dam.

    The flow though the five working units of the powerhouse is currently 12,900 cfs, according to the DWR release. Inflow has been fluctuating between about 15,000 cfs and 20,000 cfs, according to the DWR website.

    As of 4 p.m. Monday, the lake was at 861.47 feet, up a half-foot in the last 24 hours. There are 2.96 million acre-feet of water in storage, an increase of 7,000 acre-feet in 24 hours

    The spillway was shut down Feb. 27, after the lake had been drawn down more than 50 feet from the lip of the emergency spillway following the erosion scare there Feb. 12.

    Fear then that the emergency spillway weir might collapse prompted evacuation orders for more than 180,000 people in Oroville and downstream.

    Since the main spillway was shut down, approximately 1,075,000 cubic-yards of debris has been removed from the pile that built up at the base of the main spillway after it broke up starting Feb. 7, according to DWR. The pile was initially estimated to contain 1.7 million cubic-yards.

    That work will continue 24 hours a day while the spillway is shut down, according to DWR.

    Tomorrow at 11 they are turning the spillway on to 50K, sounds like they are running that level for a week.

    Voluntary evacuations have started.
