Drone Videos Of Reconstruction Of Oroville Dam Spillway

Post by Goose55 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 11:54 am

Well over 1,000,000 man hours have already been clocked on the reconstruction of California's Lake Oroville Dam's main spillway. Little man, and look what he is capable of. Go wide screen . This is awesome....

Oct 3.

Under a deadline of Nov 1, crews continue laying roller-compacted concrete (RCC) in the middle of the Lake Oroville spillway, filling the enormous erosion area to connect the upper and lower chutes. Structural concrete is placed into forms for the side walls on the upper chute and shotcrete coats the RCC side walls on the middle.

Because it's there.
It's a big engineering project and these have a scale and interest all their own. Keep going. We're depending upon you, our dam reporter.
If you come across any dam flies pass them to pepik so he can get on with sampling the dam fish.

Though it is not too sweet, the citreous marble design is refreshing womanfully, and a mood rises just to have.

I agree.

Remember when the water was rising, the spillway was damaged, and Goose was so worried about the people downstream? Many of us here urged him to remain calm. We allowed that we can't corral nature forever, but we can work like hell to protect lives and property. We wrote that there were thousands of workmen ready to tackle this project. That the folks in charge were not just sitting on their hands waiting for the whole thing to fall down. This series of updates seems perfectly appropriate to me.

I'll cherry pick the best updates and keep them coming. It is utterly amazing what tiny little man can do when there's a goal and purpose.

Here are a couple of pretty cool recent video updates showing close up detail. You can also see all the smoke in the atmosphere from the horrendous fires....

Oroville Dam was the biggest story in the news... for a while. Our nation and our news media have ADHD, and we forgot about it.

Glad to see that some mighty engineering is underway.

Oct 20....

Oct 23. The enormous cavern created by the spillway blowout last winter is almost entirely filled now. Huge trucks carrying the Roller Compacted Concrete can no longer drive in and turn around. They have to back in. ...
