En­gi­neers get closer look at Oroville Dam spill­way

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - NATION & WORLD -

The ef­fort to pro­tect North­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s Oroville Dam en­tered a cru­cial phase Mon­day as en­gi­neers be­gan to shut off wa­ter flow­ing out of the dam­aged main spill­way Mon­day af­ter­noon, giv­ing of­fi­cials their first un­ob­structed view of the eroded con­crete spill­way since a cri­sis prompted mass evac­u­a­tions ear­lier this month.

The move starts a race against na­ture, with of­fi­cials hop­ing to have cru­cial re­pairs fin­ished be­fore more rains ar­rive.
