Why Doesn't California Build Big Dams Any More?

"Been talking about how most of our water comes from a system of dams and reservoirs set up to capture the states precipitation so one logical solution here is more dams right. Not so fast says jay lund a professor of civil and environmental engineering at uc davis story. I tell people is if you were the first engineer in california and you were going to build the first reservoir where would you put it. You had put it the cheapest place that gives you the most water. Where would you put the reservoir the next best place. We've done this fifteen hundred times. What do we have left. Expensive places that don't give you much water. He says with fifteen hundred dams in the state all the good damn spots are taken heck. Even a lot of the bad spots are taken but that doesn't mean that there aren't smart things we can do with our reservoirs as david romero takes it from here with four big ideas so the first big idea has to do with managing those fifteen hundred reservoirs differently. I learned how lake mendocino along the russian river. That's where i met. Nick mala savage in the middle of the mostly dry lake bed. He helps manage the lake for the us army corps of engineers in two thousand nineteen. The water was about forty feet over our heads. He says lake mendocino could go dry by the end of the summer mar lake levels here at lake. Mendocino are the lowest they've ever been for this time in the year even though this lake is nearly dry it's on the leading edge of science around reservoir management in the past. Water was let out of the reservoir whether or not storms were in the forecast. They wanted to make room for more water. They expected would come but because of climate change. Those storms are becoming less frequent malice. Savage is helping pilot a new approach at lake. Mendocino conserve wait until a major rainstorm is coming and then let water out of the reservoir. It's called forecast informed reservoir operations. We can sit on this water. We can continue to watch the forecast and then you see that big boomer of a storm conham then you can make the decision. Hey the sun's still shining. We need to put water into the river. Generate that airspace for the next storm. And we're good

The Mississippi River Basin Model

"If you took a walk a really long walk from baton rouge to omaha. It's safe to say would definitely take more than sixty minutes in the real world. You'd have to be an enormous giant to do that but at the mississippi river basin model. Everyone's giant that's because the model squeezes sixteen states the parts of those states that are all connected to the mississippi river into a couple hundred acres of space to reference. That's about the size of one hundred fifty football fields there. Ever based model is a physical model Physical hydraulic model of the mississippi river basin. This is sarah mcewen and the reason she knows so much about this model is because she's trying to save it. It doesn't go to the headwaters but it is kind of stops at key points along the tributaries that The mississippi river main line would have had backwater impacts. So you have like tulsa omaha nashville. These are all kind of key points that are the upstream reaches and then you have those rivers that flow down until they converge join the mississippi. And then you have the mississippi all the way down to baton rouge about half a century ago. The city of jackson mississippi took it over from the us army corps of engineers but by nineteen ninety-three. It was completely shut down with no vision for its future. It was in the middle of a park. Say you have soccer field. Do you have go kart track.

The canadian company building line three claims it is exempt from needing a new presidential permit to cross the us. Canadian border because the pipeline is considered a replacement project and it secured that permit decades ago. However naismith says it's an entirely new pipeline along an entirely new route so it really is a new project. In any case she said the us president can resend the permit at will like president biden. Just did for the keystone excel tar sands pipeline. A second option is to get the army corps of engineers to resend several permits. She argues the core granted illegally last november under the clean water act which allowed construction to start but the law is very clear that before issuing a permit under the clean water act and an evaluation under the national environmental policy act or niba that the army corps needed to look at the risk of spills from the pipeline and needed to look at how that risk of spills would affect local tribes and tribal resources and they did neither here in the line.

A county's Emergency Medical services agency says that paramedic should not transfer patients who have experienced cardiac arrest. Unless they can be revived at the scene. In normal times, ambulance crews would take those people to the hospital in the slim hope that they could be resuscitated. In another memo, the agency said that ambulance crew should only administer bottled oxygen to patients whose oxygen saturation levels fall below 90%. That reflects both the regional oxygen shortage and equipment problems that have limited oxygen delivery. It's some hospitals. The Army Corps of Engineers has sent crews to address those issues at several older hospitals in L. A county.

Armed Mexicans Were Smuggled In to Guard Border Wall, Whistle-Blowers Say

"Well. A federal judge has unsealed files. Indicating that to whistle blowers have accused contractors. Who are tasked with building. Donald trump's border wall of illegally smuggling and employing armed mexican security teams to guard these construction sites The allege that these third parties that have been contracted by the federal government are also inflating the cost of the construction. So us tax payers end up footing. The bill and they end up pocketing. The money now again. I want to emphasize that these are whistle. Blower complaints there whistleblower complaints. The department of justice has refused to investigate. Which is why last week. A federal judge decided to unseal these documents allowing for the public to read what the accusations are. So let me share more of these accusations with you Because while donald trump claimed he was going to build this border wall and have mexico pay for it. The fact of the matter is not only are taxpayers paying for it at an inflated cost but we're employing mexican workers to help guard the construction sites now to employees who were both contracted to provide security at the sites accused the company sullivan land services co. or s. Ls as well as a subcontractor ultimate concrete of el paso of hiring workers who were not vetted by the united states government overcharging for construction costs and making false statements about those actions. So the whistle blower said that the subcontractor in this story ultimate concrete went so far as to build a dirt road to expedite illegal border crossings to sites in sandy. They're doing illegal border crossings. Guys like let's get off of the graphic for their shrugs. Border wall is encouraging. It's encouraging illegal border crossings. They built a dirt road for illegal. Border crossings you understand that. Mega-guys guys do you understand that. Let me give you more. And they haven't been vetted which is incredible. So okay fine. We can bring the graphic backup an unnamed supervisor at the army corps of engineers approved the operation as well as the primary builder of trump's wall has been awarded contracts worth more than one point four billion dollars for work on multiple parts of the border with those funds.

Currently we have nearly 210 more miles under construction and expect to complete 450 miles by the end of this calendar year, and the pace is quickening even after the election. Roberto Lopez is with the Texas civil rights project that represents landowners fighting the government, he says federal lawyers are now following what's called a motion for immediate possession. Too aggressively seize land for the border wall. We're still seeing filings were still seeing this happen and the government isn't stopping or slowing. It seems like they're trying to speed up the case in point. The Cellini annual reserve in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Scott Nicol is a longtime conservation activist in the region. The selling and you preserve in Stark County, which is 2.5 acres of some of the best bird habitat. Rings in burgers from all over the country and all over the world, has been acquired by the Army Corps of Engineers and is said to be destroyed for the border wall. After a public outcry, the owners of the preserve decided to cancel the whole deal and fight the government to keep out the bulldozers. Spokesman with Customs and Border Protection said they have no plans to stop construction of the border wall. Because of Biden's election quote. These barriers have proved to be a critical component in gaining operational control of the border. Immigration hawks want President Biden to keep building Trump's border wall. They want Biden to do the same thing that President Obama did when he allowed border fence contracts signed under President Bush to be completed. It should not be a pay. I made a political commitment, and therefore, on January 20th the 12 or one I'm shutting this down. I would have to say that's irresponsible. David Aguilar was chief of the Border Patrol when Obama came in. What needs to happen is take a step back. Take a look at what is in place and what the appropriate path forward should be. But representative Henry Cuellar needs Biden to stand by his pledge not to build another foot of border wall. The Laredo Democrats says that this is what he'll ask of the incoming administration. One tell the Department of Justice to stop all the condemnation suits, and the second thing is then another instruction to the Army Corps of Engineers to tell all those contractors to stop the construction. Of the wall in Texas, where most of the borderlands air in private hands the walls, progress has been slowed down by a tedious legal condemnation process. The government has contract in 121 miles of wall in the Laredo region, but they haven't acquired a single acre to put it on. Lots of landowners fought the government in court and the delay tactics worked, says Tricia Cortez, with local no Border Wall Coalition are coalitions feels confident that the wall is dead and that nothing more will happen between now and the inauguration. That comes is a huge relief to sacred Heart Children's home, which is situated right on the re grand A giant barrier with its 100 Ft Wide Enforcement zone would have plowed right through the Riverside campus of the Catholic orphanage. Tomas Rodriguez, junior, a board member, says Biden's election is the answer to a prayer. I'm very happy for that. The wall, it seems, will not be built, and that would help our cause because we would not lose any property. And we would be able to help young boys and young girls. That is if Joe Biden follows through on his promise to stop Donald Trump's wall and abandoned the unfinished project in the borderlands. John Burnett. NPR news Beijing is once again tightening its grip on Hong Kong last week for pro democracy parliamentarians were ousted from being quote unpatriotic after a new measure was put in place at effectively extinguished one of the last ways that Hong Kong residents could voice Opposition to protest the move. 15 lawmakers then resigned on mass the next day as they fight to keep the one country, two systems model that has allowed Hong Kong democratic freedoms after was handed over to Chinese control. One of those who resigned is James Toe until last Thursday. He was a member of the Legislative Council and he joins me now from Hong Kong. Welcome Nice to church to the American society. Let's start with the four legislators and why they were removed from office. Can you explain the disqualification off the four people? Actually, because Beijing cannot stand the one country, two systems and cannot allow freedom in our council anymore. China is a big country and Hong Kong is so small and if one country two systems cannot rest on patience and tolerance tow the behavior of Hong Kong. I think that would be the end of one country. Two systems. Why did you and your other pro democracy colleagues decide to resign on mass if we are a weird off the lack of a Coram? Into counseled and we demand the president toe call for Coram. But in Beijing's I, it's ah naughty behavior to the extreme that they would not tolerate. So they would like to disqualify us and what we don't want to serve in Hong Kong, just like the Democratic Party's and under the so called communist rule in Beijing. That is resigning the help.

Why a private section of the border wall is allegedly failing

"By Iraq war veteran Bryan Cole Fatchett, triple amputee. They wanted to raise a billion dollars to quote build Trump's wall. The targeted mission Texas in the Rio Grande Valley, one of the busiest illegal border crossing areas in the country, all on the border. We're here building. You gotta help out. They had started producing the video's promoting this project and they were on the property. They started clearing the property before anyone really knew what was going on The company Clearing the riverbank to build the private wall was Fisher Sand and Gravel. Tommy Fisher, the company's CEO, had been trying and failing to land a lucrative border wall contract from the government. Since 2017. When the Trump administration began soliciting Wall design concepts. Fisher was one of the companies to put up a prototype. Officials of the Department of Homeland Security said it had design flaws. A second bid was also rejected. Frustrated Tommy Fisher took another approach. We really believe with our patent pending system, we could bring sexy. Back to construction. He became a fixture on Fox News, the president's favorite network at the time, people time sounding less like a contractor and more like a contestant on a reality show pandering to an audience of one, You know, hopefully the president will see this as well. And he's a guy who says he can cut through bureaucracy two weeks after that appearance on Fox In April of 2019. I don't know if you heard about this contractor that said he could build the whole wall for a lot cheaper than anybody else. Yes, I have. We're dealing with him. Actually, Fisher Comes from North Dakota. Recommended strongly by a great new senator. As you know, Kevin Cramer, by May of 2019 Tommy Fisher had the president's attention but still couldn't land a contract to build the government's wall. The Army Corps of Engineers, which oversees border wall construction, pointed to the company's lack of experience building border walls to prove they could fissure teamed up with we build the wall. First in New Mexico and later here on the banks of the Rio Grande admission. On the banks of any rivers difficult. But building on the raging Rio Grande is especially challenging, made more complicated because the U. S Mexico border but straight down the middle of it. So any plans to build on it must be approved by the International boundary and Water Commission for I, B. W C. Sand and gravel didn't get that approval before they started. Bulldozes. What steps did they skip? All of them. What should they have done? They should have gone to the I B W c to the A and presented their plan an actual plan. What about this idea that you know this is private money being used on private land and a landowner could do whatever he wants. They absolutely can do whatever they want on their property. As long as it doesn't affect other people's property. And you think the wall infringes on other clearly does. The way the bollards were built is gonna cause clogging of that wall, So those followed the trash or debris could get stuck in there and then the waters. It's a giant break, just like a rake in your yard. It's going to catch all that debris and redirect that water. Penna filed a lawsuit on behalf of a neighboring wildlife refuge called the National Butterfly Center, which feared the wall would cause flooding to its property. U. S government also suit on behalf of the I. B. W C. Good walls make good neighbours. But this wall did not. We've got rogue priest running around anti Trump anti Won't we build the walls? Bryan Cole fragile, launched attacks against anyone who opposed their wall. Falsely saying the national Butterfly Centre was the site of a rampant sex trade and that the Army Corps of Engineers was part of the deep state even took game and Father Royce Nights a local priest to oppose the Trump wall. Accusing him of promoting child trafficking. Also not true. We build the wall people came after you personally and that's something I didn't even know who they were. They're coming after the local priest. Yeah, I guess you're not from around here comes from around here. We can. Even Mom and Dad can disagree about things without being mean and nasty. Last December, Brian Colfax bragged in an interview that we build the wall had a direct line to the White House. We have Crispo back and Steve Bannon A lot of people that are tied in with the Trump administration, so we're able to back channel things to the Trump Administration and let them know what we're doing, But what they were doing was falling apart. A recent engineering inspection after summer storms revealed deep gashes under the foundation of the wall. That's Mariana Trevino, right, who runs the Butterfly center line underneath it. This was a normal seasonal rainfall and what happened to the wall the foundation washed out from under enormous sections of it, His attorney said after this, that this is just a normal part of new construction if you walked out of your new house And had a 30 FT hole under your home foundation. Would you consider that normal? There's the end of the hall right

"The army corps of engineer where you literally see thousands of military doctors and nurses on the streets of New York and other cities around the country this is one more step we're we're literally as the president said from early on are leaving no stone unturned and we are delivering a whole of government approach of for our states as the as they deal with the corona virus outbreak of governors are continuing to expand testing and we assure them that we're going to continue to work in every way to support their efforts to do just that and I I will say again as we said before as Dr birch comes up to to explain to you what we deliver to the governors today we told the governors once again today that by our best estimates we have enough testing capacity today for every state in America to go to phase one if they meet the other criteria of fourteen days of reduced cases and sufficient hospital capacity to prepare for any eventuality that may occur once again we have enough testing capacity for every state in America to go to phase one but we sure the governors today that we're going to continue to work around the clock to expand the testing capacity support supplies and to support their efforts to encourage social distancing in the very mitigation efforts of the American people have been doing that have brought us the progress that we see all across the country today with that Mister president alleges that Dr birch describe what we distributed today number thank you Mr vice president Mister president we just want to show you a couple of additional flights but also to remind all of Americans that we still have a significant number of cases both in the Boston area and across Massachusetts and Chicago to really that our hearts go out to those cities as they continue to struggle with corona virus and the consequences of the hospitalization and all the health care providers that are on the front lines we wanted so these are the just an illustration of the different types of equipment that are out there describing both is low speed but quick turn around time to high speed and taking three to four hours to actually run a hundred or more test and so the equipment range from all those different and that's why there's five thousand of them as noted on by the president in this list we wanted every governor and every state and health laboratory director to have a clear understanding of the full capacity within the state both for the capacity but also we're technical assistance and additional supplies may be available and we were proud to put the federal labs on that list because the military and the VA has stepped up every what step of the way to provide support both in testing and care we have merit many military members on the front lines and I'm sure the military would offer their facilities to the governor of Maryland or any governor who wanted to utilize those to expand testing for the next flight I'm just going to run through them very quickly so every governor not only receive the excel spreadsheet with the complete list of the equipment and the zip code of the location in the laboratory to really be able to create a mosaic of laboratories of the high speed and low speed equipment together to meet the needs of their clients depending if their drive through our hospital needs so this is what Florida looks like next slide this is what Louisiana looks like next slide Merrill and with significant capacity next slide Virginia was significant capacity throughout the state next slide New York I'm obviously a lot of capacity in New York City with overlapping capacity it's important to know where this is because then they can let hospitals and labs can support each other when they need surge capacity next slide this is New Jersey next fight Pennsylvania next five Massachusetts next slide Ohio next slide Oklahoma next slide Washington next slide I think that's out Wyoming so we wanted to show both in states that have large populations and in states that have lower populations you can see that in general the number of machines that match their population and we're working with the Walter Reed group in the American society of microbiologists and all the lab directors to really create a web of understanding of what the capacity is currently what the capacity can be and how the federal government can support them and developing their strategies linked to the over our towards the economy Bloomberg daybreak we continue to watch equities around the world we do mornings at five eastern on Bloomberg radio Bloomberg business happen Bloomberg radio dot com Bloomberg the world is listening yeah doctor first university of southern California in the LA county public health put out a report today that suggests that the penetrance of virus is as much as five almost forty times what was believed to be that as many as four hundred and forty two thousand people in LA county may have been affected which suggests two things it suggests that you have a lot more people out there who could be spreading the virus but it also suggests that the case fatality rate is more in line with the twenty seventeen twenty eighteen fuller than what we've seen in some other areas of the world but I'm wondering if you've seen that what you thought so we're looking.

"Beds or we may be doubling up so depending on they need they're doing a good job with the with beds in Michigan but they may need more than the two hundred fifty so FEMA and the army corps of engineers are prepared to go there quickly and get it done in Louisiana we're delivering to field hospitals to provide five hundred new hospital beds I've been talking with the governor John bel Edwards and the army corps of engineers has been really doing incredible work establishing three thousand bad alternate care sites at the New Orleans convention center which will be operational believe it or not this week so we're doing that three thousand that bad alternate care side and we're also doing a five hundred bed new hospital and that's in Louisiana which really got hit it started off very late it was looking good and then all of a sudden it just reared up came from nowhere in addition to the supplies were delivered we're also giving hospitals the flexibility to use new facilities including surgical care centers to care for hospital patients who were not infected for example I know that many expected mothers are understandably concerned about exposing their new born babies to the virus then they should be with erection yesterday hospitals now have the authority to create special areas for mothers to deliver their babies are very safe and healthy environment totally separate over the past few months the US state department is organized one of the largest and most complex international evacuation operations in American history Mike Pompeii always been working round the clock along with ambassador o'brien since January twenty ninth we have successfully repatriated over twenty five thousand Americans for more than fifty countries where they were literally stuck in some cases locked in then I salute the incredible public servants at the department of state as well as their counterparts at DHS and HHS who have played such an important role in doing this you probably read about the the young people in Peru and young people in Brazil and they were absolutely stuck and we got him out got a almost everybody is out now back home with their parents their wives their husbands I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead we're going to go to a very tough two weeks and then hopefully as the experts are predicting as so I think a lot of us are predicting after having studied it so are you going to start seeing some real light at the end of the tunnel but this is going to be a very painful very very painful two weeks when you look and see at night the kind of death that's been caused by this invisible enemy it's it's incredible I was watching last night governor Murphy of New Jersey say twenty nine people died today meeting yesterday and others talking about numbers far greater but you get to know state I know New Jersey so well in the twenty nine people and hundreds in other locations hundreds in other states and this is gonna be a rough two week period as a nation we face a difficult few weeks as we approach that that really important day when we're going to see things get better all of a sudden and it's going to be like a burst of light I really think and I hope their strength will be tested on our indoors will be tried but America will ensure with love and courage and iron clad resolve this is the time for all Americans to come together and do our part I appreciate a lot of the media we've had a lot of really good thing said I think only good things can be said when you look at the job that's been done I've just spoke with Franklin Graham was an extraordinary person and Samaritan's purse has been like so many others just been amazing and so fast they did it so fast he's been doing that for a long time but I think people are really seeing what they have done Franklin Graham very special family as we send planeloads of masks and gloves and supplies to the communities battling the plague and that's what it is is a plague we also send our prayers we pray for the doctors and the nurses for the paramedics and the truck drivers and the police officers of the sanitation workers and above all the people fighting for their lives in New York and all across our land I watched as doctors and nurses wanted to a certain hospital in Elmhurst this morning I know well and hers queens at so I grew up right next to it I know the hospital very well considering it all my life my young life and I will tell you that to see the scenes of trailers out there and what they're doing with those trailers the freezers and nobody can even believe it and I spoke to some of my friends I can't believe what they're seeing and I watch the doctors and the nurses walking into that hospital at this morning it's like military people going into battle going into war the bravery is incredible and I just have to take my hat I would take my head of aware that I had a group that had off so fast and I would say you people are just incredible they really are they're very brave they're going in and they don't know you have you have lots of things flying around in the air you don't know what you're touching is it safe then you also see where your friends are going to the hospital you say hello how is he doing two days later they say Sir is unconscious was in a coma so things are happening that we've never seen before in this country with all of that being said the countries come together like I've never seen it before and we will prevail we will win and hopefully it will be in a relatively short period of time with that I'd like to ask doctor Burks to come up and show you some of the letters just the data that has been I think brilliantly put together and that right after that I'm going to ask doctor felt you to speak and Mike pence is going to give you some of the recent events that have taken place and some of the statistics that we have that I think will be very interesting here thank you very much for listening to a live press conference from the White House the coronavirus task force KTA arm if I can have the first slide please so always and that's what the slight is labeled is goals of community mitigation really highlighting that this begins in the middle and the and with community this community and the community of American people that are going to have to do the things for the next thirty days to make a difference I think you know from that large Blue Mountain that you can see behind me and I just want to thank the five or six international and and domestic modelers from Harvard from Columbia from northeastern from imperial who helped us tremendously it was their models that created the ability to see what these mitigations could do how steeply they could depress the curve from that giant Blue Mountain down to that Morris stippled area in their estimates they had between one point five million and two point two million people in the United States succumbing to this virus without mitigation yet through their detailed studies and showing us what social distancing would do what people what what would happen if people stayed home what would happen if people were careful every day to wash their hands and worry about touching their faces that what extraordinary thing this could be if every American followed these and that takes us to that stippled mountain that's much lower a hill actually down to one hundred to two hundred thousand deaths which is still way too much next slide please simultaneously there is a mock modeller out of the university of Washington that that modeled from cases up utilizing the experience around the globe to really understand how this information that we have from Italy and Spain and South Korea and China could really help us give insight into the hospital needs the ventilator needs and really the the number of people who potentially could succumb to this illness it is this model that we're looking at now that provides us the most detail of the time course that is possible but this model assumes full mitigation it's informed every morning or every night by the reality on the ground coming in from New York New Jersey and around the United States as a model then informed every morning so that it is adjusted so it is up to date every day this is the model of the predicted fatalities and mortality in the United States and as the president said it's very much focused on the next two weeks and the stark reality of what this virus will do as it moves through communities next slide please but this is a slide that gives us great hope and understanding about what is possible on the bottom of the slide where you can barely see that blue line at the very bottom that's the current cases in California the cumulative cases in California where they're doing significant testing the next line up is Connecticut the Orange Line is New Jersey the blue line is New York the yellow line is Washington we all remember Washington state it was just a month ago when they started to have the issues in Washington state but they brought together their communities and their health providers and they put in strong mitigation methods and testing and you can see what the results in Washington state and California is but without the continuation for the next thirty days anything could change next slide please so I'm sure you're interested in seeing all of the states so on this slide is all fifty states and the district of Columbia but I think it shows in stark reality the difference between New York and New Jersey and other states with similar populations and urban areas our goal over the next thirty days is to ensure that the states that you see the forty eight across the bottom maintain this lower level of new cases with the hope that we don't have significant outbreaks in other states and other metro areas as the community comes together to work together and ensure that the health care providers around the globe in in the United States are strengthened by our resolve to continue to mitigate community by community this is done community by community if we all know people are in their states and in their communities and we're very dependent on each person in the United States doing the same thing following the presidential guidelines to a tee I know it's a lot to ask because you've done it for fifteen days so if you can show the next slide please so this is what gives us a lot of hope this is the case finding in Italy and you can see that they're beginning to turn the corner in new cases they're entering their fourth week of full mitigation and showing what is possible when we work together as a community as a country to change the course of this pandemic together it is this graphic and the graphic of many of the states that gives us hope of what is possible with continuing for another thirty days amidst all that hope I must say that like we warned about Detroit and Chicago we start to see changes in Massachusetts New Orleans continues to be a problem of new cases although they're stabilizing and I think it really shows the depth of dedication of the American people to the.

"I'm tansy Vega. And this is the takeaway, Oklahoma is one of several states that's been hit by extreme weather over the last several weeks, tornadoes to torrential downpours parts of Tulsa are under water, and more are at risk of flooding with a nearby dam currently releasing an enormous amount of water. Here's Tulsa, mayor vitam on Wednesday. We are planning for and preparing for the flood of record and we think everybody along the Arkansas river corridor. Ought to be doing the same for more on the flood of record. We have met Trotter on the line. He's the reporter at K W S news and Tulsa, Matt. Thanks for joining us. You're welcome. So how flooded, is it where you are? Tell us what you see. So we have several neighborhoods along, the Arkansas river in northeastern Oklahoma that are seeing quite a bit of flooding because of all the rain, we've gotten over the last thirty days. Really a lot of it in the last fourteen days and water releases from a local damn keystone dam that the US army corps of engineers operates they have to let water out of it to keep it in good working condition, and that's causing downstream flooding from the dam. So typically, the Arkansas river is under ten feet and it's been around twenty three feet for the past week. So you can sort of magin, that's causing a lot of problems. Now met, we heard the mayor talking about the flood of record, essentially, I'm wondering, is that because they're concerned about the structural components of the keystone dam and whether or not those will be able to maintain the water as it stands right now. So when mayor bynum talks about the flood of record, what he means is just the level of the river, really in nineteen Eighty-six. The river crested at twenty five feet due to flooding there. And it does not look like we're going to hit that in this flood event just because the river Riverhead twenty three point four feet or so at its peak, and now the army corps of engineers is stepping down its water releases. And that's going to see some of this water received for us in the coming days, but the levees are a concern they were built around World War Two, so they're seventy years old. So it's been kind of a waiting game in the nineteen eighty six flood water was on the levees for maybe a day. And in this flood, we've had water on these seventy year old levies for a week now and it's stretching into more than a week. So we've got the Oklahoma national guard. We've got the army corps of engineers out on the levees, twenty four hours a day for pairing to step up if any of them fail and the residents behind them have been told that they. They need to be ready. There's about ten thousand people that live behind them and the county estimates about two billion dollars worth of infrastructure from roads and bridges to oil, refineries are behind these levees Matt, what happens next. Well, as I said earlier, the army corps of engineers is lowering its water releases from keystone dam. We've had less rain over the past forty eight hours or so than we have in the last two weeks. And we're looking at sunshine for the next few days. So that's quite helpful when it comes to this flood, but it's going to take time for the waters to go away, certainly downstream communities from Tulsa, Tulsa area are in worship than we are some towns down in the Muskogee.

"To all things considered from NPR news. People in Tulsa, Oklahoma are bracing. For more rain tonight and tomorrow and that means more flooding in a city that has already been drenched. It's lead to floods evacuations and a big test of the city's levees, Matt Trotter of member station. K W in Tulsa, joins us now. Hi, matt. How bad is it right now there until so the Arkansas river that runs through Tulsa? Since last Monday. It's up from eleven feet, which is a little above average. But still pretty typical to more than twenty three feet its highest recorded level was back in nineteen Eighty-six at twenty five so it's still two feet below that all time high. But it's still really high here, and how is the city dealing with all of this water. Well, we have a Levy system, and that's keeping water out of a lot of areas. Right now as the US army corps of engineers, let's water out of keystone dam. That's the main dam for the reservoir upstream. From us. But the US army corps of engineers is trying to balance those releases with what comes into the reservoir as we get just a ton of rain, some areas around have had twenty inches in the past month. So it's, it's a lot of rain that we're trying to deal with tell us about what sitting leaders are saying right now. Sure. So earlier this afternoon, Tulsa, mayor GT bynum held a news conference to give an update. Here's what he had to say about the levees, the levees continued operate as they're designed. They do have a heavy load on them. They're being tested in a way that they never have been before we continue to encourage people that live behind those two, please proactively relocate and the mayor's calling this, a high risk situation right now, but not in emergency just yet not yet, but more rain is expected tonight and tomorrow. So what is the outlook for the future? Well, the army corps of engineers is in charge of the dam, and they're hoping things will improve in a few days. What they told us during the briefing. This afternoon was as long as what flows into the reservoir stays even or below what they're letting out, then things should be okay. They expect the level to start decreasing sometime this afternoon. And that'll make a little bit of room for any additional rain that falls in the area tonight. Now understand that today. City officials warned people to stay out of parks along the river. Have people actually been going there where the river flooded? Yeah. That's actually been sort of an interesting problem. That's happened. People wanna go look at the river. See what's basically a historic flood situation. They're taking photos and sell fees. I've seen pictures of people actually waiting into the river full-on bathing in the river like as their own personal hot tub or something like that. So. No absolutely not. There's a few risks. The obvious one is it's dangerous just to walk around in area, where the water's been eating away at the ground sinkholes could open up. But there's also raw sewage in this floodwater. And there's also venomous snakes, there's water moccasins that washed down with the flood. Right. Matt Trotter of member station. K W in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Thank you for joining us. Stay safe there. You're welcome. It's all things considered on WNYC to make his new album, the Japanese American artists to kiss. She Bashi decided to turn to the past.
