Pretty cool to see the steps taken to build it!

I heard that it took over 300,000 cubic yards of RCC (roller compacted concrete) to fill that 120 ft deep cavern that the breach caused.

Great drone video above. Don't miss viewing the 3.5 minute vid.

This is cool. A time-lapse vid of all that is going on. Go widescreen, sit back and enjoy. And imagine how it will be when the Lake fills and 160,000 cubic feet PER SECOND will be released down this humongous shoot. $1.1 Billion so far.....
