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

"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.

EMTs Enduring Long Wait Times With Patients Outside Hospitals During Pandemic, Los Angeles

"Of how dire the medical crisis has become in L, a county. Paramedics are being advised to reduce their use of oxygen and to refrain from transporting patients who have virtually no chance of survival. The measures are being implemented to allow medical workers to focus on patients with a better chance of being saved. KCRW's Darryl sentiment has the details. This new directive from L. 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. Meanwhile, officials have devised a plan to shorten hours long wait times for ambulance crews who arrived with patients at hospitals that are filled up there, setting up new tent like receiving spaces outside of emergency rooms to accept patients.

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. The company is said to have allowed its subcontractor. Ultimate concrete's a higher armed mexicans and facilitate illegal border crossings.

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

I don't think so I'd I don't I don't think so I think patience is wearing thin I think niceties get tossed out the window I I interviewed him last night for television on POV Chris burns on vacation so I'm subbing for Chris again tonight here's the bays were going to join us tonight on the program talk about the education innovation some of this coming up but I I've never really heard or seen a Kevin that upset and it did this all this was just transpiring yesterday amid all these these votes and he's getting these to you know email saying yes no we'll get this information to you know we won't we're not gonna give it to you like what are you kidding me and they're just listen to him talk about the US army corps of engineers the folks using your taxpayer dollars to protect the United States border with Mexico something we've talked and talked and talked and talked about but never get done president trump asked center Kevin Kramer do a deep dive on these guys for me I you know I hear they're great I hear the horrible I want somebody just give me the fax is give me the fax three stars requesting this information and the and he can get IT is frustrated by it so as I've learned many times the corps of engineers is their own government their their own direction they're arrogant they're secretive in I'm starting to wonder if they're not corrupt I mean when they hide behind words like proprietary in secret but they can't provide me with the statute that says that they have that authority I get very suspicious I'm not sure they want to build the wall Scott quite honestly they're they're they're supposed to be doing four hundred new miles by the end by you know by the end of next year and they built fifty four so far to your point you're saying that they build none this brand new and I I Williams cut him some slack and say that if you replace auto barrier was with a thirty foot wall you've you've you've built some new wall you're keeping me a pedestrian traffic all the previously they walked right over so I would be fair to that well to be fair I'm very frustrated as you can tell if it to be fair yeah give give him credit for even with that replacement of other barriers and a wall is better than a vehicle barrier but it's fifty miles is fifty miles in the entire trump administration the only new wall protecting new turf was built by we build the wall we paid for that not we as in taxpayers we as people above and beyond that shelled out money to donate an average of sixty dollar donation that tallied up twenty four million dollars and allow them to build the wall but I was out last week and they do that in like a weekend like three miles on a weekend or something and the first time Thomas this was brought on the line to say here we want to do five weeks you know what I brought a bit earlier the actual construction of the wall so it was a week what gets me is that and the the wall that they are building a replacing is nowhere near the quality materials to Tom he's putting in the no where near the infrastructure with the technology in the sonar all of it doesn't include a rolled doesn't include a light forget a lot of this sub standard steel the the course said they don't want road quit putting roads in your in your bed meanwhile why at the head of the US border patrol union and his deputy practically in tears over the road say is fantastic is a fantastic I keep hearing from their agreement that they say they don't want the beds how you know I mean it's it's it's ridiculous I'm not gonna stop on this I just think it's too on the mantle to every thing about presidential campaigns period you promise something you do it and besides is necessary by the way it's not racist do you know that we all do it protects the majority minority population of someone part to Mexico in el Paso from being invaded by cartels in human trafficking how's that racist champion might not want to get in here to for center from I'm

"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.

And before it even gets to that point. It is clear that there would be Republicans fighting Democrats on it. But let me tell you what this legislation is all about it's known as the restrictions against illegitimate declarations for emergency reappropriation act or the raider act. I kinda love it. That was great branding, their the legislation would prevent Trump from using funding from the US army corps of engineers, civil works funds and military construction funding for the construction of barriers land acquisition or any other associated activities on the southern border without specific statutory authorization from congress if. He declared a national emergency. Yeah. So make sense. There's two different ways that you could blog President Trump from this national emergency declaration using it a subvert funds to his own purposes. One is the courts, but that's going to take a while. So that's the downside for Trump to the Courcel bottle them up for quite some time before it can actually do that. And then congressionally you could try to block it preemptively like this, and the part that I liked the most is that they're emphasizing look, this is supposed to be military and disaster relief funds. So you're gonna take from. I mean, we've got now more and more disasters because of climate change. Obviously last year was record-breaking, and literally disastrous and to take away from all those floods and fires at cetera at this particular time is makes America less safe dot more safe..

We've long been friends President Reagan did extend the runway at Barbara and extend the port in those days with the US army corps of engineers, and we deeply. Are appreciative of those development efforts and the full engagement with the Somaliland people. You know on the on the point of good governance. We do want to note that the first biometric election process, I think anywhere in the world was certainly beta tested there in the last presidential election with the electorate, which was which was I think funded by USA ID and was a US technology that was that was utilized there.

"Richard C Hoagland with us tonight on grounds during Richard. I alluded to it earlier. And I wanted to kind of bring you up again, it's called the new horizons wasn't project? Horizon something that was what together by Werner von Braun. No, no, no. That was the army. Okay, back right after World War Two with. Oh. Who is that? Big disclosure Colonel Trudeau was his boss. Oh, he was down here in Roswell. He wrote a book. He was one of the progenitor of this project horizon, which was a US army corps of engineers plan to build a moon base with rockets to basically keep the Soviet Union a day during the height of the Cold War, and they never funded it. So they want an outpost is what they wanted. Yeah. But they never funded maybe. Well, I mean, are we we are we looking for this space superiority, and eventually maybe an outpost because I know that the the the secret is is that we are right now working with the Bigelow, aerospace and other groups, but Heavy's inflatable space stations that they can just bring up inflate them. We have them ready to go for the moon. We have ready to go for Mars. You realize all this Chinese stuff and all that that's only the window dressing on the program. We're supposed to see there's a secret space program behind the scenes funded by God knows how many hundreds of billions which got real anti gravity et cetera et cetera, which is the real space program. So what we're seeing is merely air coverage to bring the populations of earth into the fold now. 'cause it's time for disclosure disclosure began the evening in the predawn hours here in Mexico of January one thirty three minutes after the ball dropped in Times Square. It's amazing. How it all comes together? And you know what? Again, it's a plan. It's amazing. We're getting to look at it and do cat scans. And they're finally going to start telling us the truth. So. So I believe the twenty I don't believe that. I do not believe that disclosure is going to happen. The way people think it's going to happen in the middle of it. You're in the middle of it. By trump. So okay. This is what you think disclosure is. This is what you because I believe that it was confirmation that the Pentagon was looking at threat assessment with the UFO's, and it made the New York Times, that's APL. Not you all this New York Times freak out. You answer. Is you don't tell them the fishery don't freak out you show them the data? You let them through social media come to it. Which means you have to wait long enough, Javid technology for social media hint. Hint. Well, and you let them soak. So they come to it on their own time. Let's say the Houston chronicle is kind of the Houston Chronicle's kind of leaning towards how you're thinking, Richard. It says it's kind of odd that what is usually a bluish white Hugh typically associated with these snowy hand sculptured structures. That's what they said Alderson sculpture hand sculptured. That's what they said it looks like they look like hand sculptured structures. Ultimate duly has a red cast. It's a much different object than scientists working on Nassar. Do arises mission picture just thirty six hours ago. Scrap zoom past the rock. They thought it looked like a bowling pin? Now, it's beginning to come into view. And it looks a lot different than they suspected. This is from the chronicle. I think it just me again, that's between the lines hand sculpted. Give me a blankety blank break. Yeah. This is. By the way, the major segment of the press has to be on remember operation, Mockingbird infiltrating all the press and all that you don't think they're writing this copy to get people close to thinking outside the box. Okay. I'm here we go from Houston chronicle. Nafta thought ultimate throughly was a singular object. But new data is showing that it's not a singular object. It is to objects that have inexplicably become stuck together. It is. Contact binary. They call it like seventy seven. Have you ever seen the have you ever seen the Soyuz spacecraft? Yes. Ever seen the design? What's it? Look like, it looks like this fears together. Well, yeah, it's called the contact binary. And this is what it is is a contact binary. They said it's two objects not one object. Okay. Was contact binary. Imagine for a moment, we're dealing with real asteroids real real big rocks, like ten miles in diameter. Right, right. Made of heavy stuff made.
