    Cuts for infrastructure. They couldn't afford to fix it with all the illegal mouths to feed and house.
    Good job libs, another fail.
    I guess that explains the American Dream phrase I've heard all my life. I always envisioned it as something for us Americans. Over the years it's morphed from Dream of America into America Dream and is only for foreigners....Dangit! I really want my American Dream!

    The picture in question is right at the top. If you scroll down through the comments you see the same picture with the areas in question circled in red. You can click on the picture to blow it up.
    The water level is well below those areas now, I don't think they will have an issue unless they can't control the water and it has to go over the e-spillway again. Then we won't know if those patched areas will hold or not. For now though the main spillway is holding even with that large flow of water going over it and the lake level is going down still. Of course it hasn't rained a lot here yet so we'll see how bad it will get when the storm really reaches us.

    Did you all catch the part about dredge tailing being used in the construction of the dam?

    Yep....Probably some decent gold in there. Maybe even big gold!

    I believe my wifes grandpa told me that a guy chased a nugget the size of his fist up the conveyor but it fell in the slurry before he could grab it. Not sure if its true but I wouldn't doubt it with the size of gold pulled out of this area.

    my take on this is: we've been busy running an empire instead of a nation since the second world war.
    all empires fall..what goes up, must go down, as is the case with the water going over the broken Oroville dam spillway.

    the state of Jefferson has been an ongoing thing since 1941...1941! from what I've seen of this "movement", it will still be talked about in 2041.

    much as any of you might hate Guvnuh Moonbeam, he's balanced the state budget after Guvnuh Ahnold ran the bill up, and signed the so-called "moratorium" on dredging, I might add.

    our politicians, Republican, Democrat, whatever have forgotten that they're public servants of us, not the other way around.

    and speaking of dams and such, there's a new one being planned: the Centennial on the Bear River. another damn dam...not only am I opposed for mining reasons, this would be worse for the ecology of the region, more so than any "methyl mercury" that manages to float it's way downstream to SanFran, where it will cause more mutations among the mutants there already.

    Anyone remeber this? I was living in Folsom, directly downstream from the Folsom Dam when this happened. At the time, Folsom dam was already releasing near designed capacity. 31 years ago tomorrow.

    "much as any of you might hate Guvnuh Moonbeam, he's balanced the state budget after Guvnuh Ahnold ran the bill up, and signed the so-called "moratorium" on dredging, I might add."

    This year Browns budget people are calling for a $1.6 billion deficit and the unfunded liabilities (mostly state pensions) amount to $241 billion (this assuming the rosy picture of 7.5% interest on investment).
