History of Failure

Jan 08, 2018

Repeating History and the Oroville Dam Failure

The release of a 584-page report by the Independent Forensic Team (IFT) ordered by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission foreshadows potentially significant liability for the State of California. One can only hope that Governor Brown and liberal Democrats in the Capitol, who seem more interested in California becoming the home of the “Resistance” to the Trump Administration, will make a priority of restoring those damaged by the State’s failures.

While this may seem a gratuitous partisan “shot” at the party controlling the levers of the state’s bureaucracies, it is based on some historical precedent set in the state’s treatment of victims of the past failures of California’s flood control systems.
