No connection to the thread topic?
Not so fast.

That was clearly an Artesian.

Why did "they" build the Oroville dam?
For "their" water.

Coincidence?
I think not.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

Interesting narration of how this all came about, what has been accomplished so far, and what is yet to come. First time I had heard just how deep that canyon that was born after the main spillway blew apart. 175 feet deep! All of it was filled with concrete

Goose, why?
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.
This pretty interesting stuff...

Kind of a love/ hate relationship you have with the thread, then, huh? That works.
