This no more than a Money Grab by a few lawyers.
So, if the dam wasn't there would they have been flooded out years ago? And several times since? How much would that have cost in increased insurance payments, rebuilding, etc?
Just a curiosity question.
But the dam IS there.
DWR failed to maintain it.
I wonder how much property value has ped as a result of this fiasco.
Given that surveys show that something like 30-40\% of the people didn't evacuate would they require some proof?
No! The DWR and that Dam have saved them from floods many times already. They were fortunate they still contained mother nature 2016/2017 version. Lawsuits are the death of our society and drive up costs for just about everything ..... see auto./ medical and home insurance....see workplace rules and policies. IMO its just some greedy people playing the victim in order to freeload some cash from the State of California
DWR knew about the spillway for decades and covered it up.
Every employee of DWR should be in prison for attempted murder.
