The State of California received $34 Billion as a portion of Obama‘s 2009 stimulus package. Of that $22 million dollars of stimulus funds went directly towards safety improvements of Folsom Damn, which was described as good shape at the time of the grant money in 2009.
Meanwhile, Oroville Dam has been failing and $0 of that repair money went to helping right the problems. Officials have been warned that this dam has been failing for 12 years, but the state of California did nothing.
As seen in the Gateway Pundit:
“Despite more than a decade of warnings about Oroville, there is no public record of the country’s tallest dam receiving any of the more than $34 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act sent to California for infrastructure projects.
Over $22 million in stimulus funds did go toward safety improvements to the Folsom Dam, which was described as in “good shape” at the time the grant was awarded in 2009…”
A massive storm is about to hit the area around the Oroville Dam, just north of Sacramento according to the LA times and National weather service.
” However, the situation will change substantially Sunday when a larger storm arrives at Oroville and the Feather River basin.
“It looks like it’s going to be a pretty good rainmaker,” said NWS meteorologist Mike Smith. “You’re looking at 10 inches from Sunday night to Monday night.”
Overall, forecasters have predicted a series of four storms, with the first arriving Thursday, the second arriving Saturday, the third on Sunday night and the fourth on Wednesday of next week.
The largest of that train of storms will be the one arriving Sunday night. Much of the water falling across the local mountains and foothills is expected to flow directly into the reservoir. This comes at a time when Lake Oroville is at 88% of capacity and the ground and surrounding foothills are saturated from one of the wettest winters on record”
