CALIFORNIA DAMS ABOUT TO COLLAPSE – First Oroville & Now Morgan Hill & Anderson Reservoir
This week all eyes have been on the Oroville Dam, but now attention is shifting south to Morgan Hill and Anderson Reservoir.
Anderson Reservoir is rapidly filling up and over its recommended capacity. The reservoir is only supposed to be at 68 percent capacity, but it is at 100.04% capacity.
Water is being released at 400 cubic feet per second, and into the spillway.
Already officials from Santa Clara Valley Water District have been dumping water as fast as they can from the reservoir, but it simply isn’t enough to offset the water streaming in from all the rain we’ve seen this winter. That outlet has been fully open since January 9th releasing water into Coyote Creek at the rate of 400 cubic feet per second.
The concern is over the dam’s seismic safety. The danger would lie in the possibility of a magnitude 7.25 quake on the nearby Calaveras fault. The water district tells KTVU that is a remote possibility, but one of which they are aware. That is why they’re working so hard to dump water as quickly as possible. The long term fix is a $400 million seismic retrofit, which would be at least three years away.
The California Department of Water Resources suspended overflow from the Oroville Dam after gushing water ripped open a sinkhole in the middle of the spillway. Engineers assessed the options and opened up a secondary, emergency spillway on Saturday morning california drought fema haarp trump maximum capacity.
The 770-foot-tall Oroville Dam creates the lake by impounding the Feather River, serving to generate hydroelectric power, supply water, and control flooding.

Tens of thousands of panicked residents took to the freeways, causing total gridlock on the roads and sending anxiety levels soaring as they wondered if the dam would burst while they were sat in their cars.
‘Everyone was running around; it was pure chaos Evacuation centers were set up at a fairgrounds in Chico, California, about 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Oroville, but major highways leading south out of the area were jammed as residents fled the flood zone. The evacuation was ordered Sunday afternoon after engineers spotted a hole on the concrete lip of the secondary spillway for the 770-foot-tall Oroville Dam and told authorities that it could fail within the hour. evacuation order national guard lake shasta don pedro reservoir lake mcclure san luis reservoir pine flat reservoir2,178 views
