Topic - Oroville dam
Posted: February 14 2017 at 10:00pm By Dutch Josh Apdf-file Queensland University Australia on dam failures in the past. A 12ft /3.6m drop with the maximum 901ft/275meter does not sound very safe with new storms on their way (also snow melt a problem ?) and the spillway-failure being clear.

A major collapse does not stay at the location of the incident but goes all the way in the watersystem both downstream flooding AND upstream sudden waterdrop. Did I get it correct the US has something close to 30.000 dams ? On the construction of the Oroville Dam.
