Isn't there usually rocks, cement, or some other very hard substance used in earthen dams to help support the structure? This just looked like dirt.

That's the problem with earth-filled dams. They usually have an impervious core of densified clay, or compacted concrete, and may have some armoring, such as rock or a concrete slab, on the the uphill side. As this one is so old, it may have just been compacted dirt or clay. The problem is when water starts overtopping the dam, it effectively liquifies the soils on the back side of the dam, which is used to support the core. Once it goes, the dam fails. That's why it is so important to have enough spillway capacity to keep the water from overtopping the dam. For a much greater example, look at the Orville Dam in California. It started with the failure of the concrete in the spillway, which forced the operator to shut down the spillway. When water started to come over the emergency spillway and erode the back face, the operator was left with little choice, but to open the failed spillway back up, and hope for the best. Then there is the other case of the partially collapsed Derbyshire dam in England. It is another earth-filled dam which came extremely close to complete collapse due to spillway failure and overtopping situation. So the US does not have the monopoly on dam failures. Yes, we have a bunch of old dams which were built back 50 years or more which have not been upgraded. So we will continue to have the risk of having dam failures until enough money is spent to upgrade the infrastructure. I wouldn't hold my breath though, as the politics of the situation will ensure that never enough money is spent on it. There are far more lucrative political agendas to spend money on; and hence, we will continue to suffer dam collapses.

EGLE did you hear the screaming of the clams ? Obi Wan Kenobe heard them …."like a million little clam voices all crying out in terror and then were suddenly silenced". Colonel Kurts heard them…."The horror....The horror" …."EGLE you think that if you can just save 1 little clam that you won't here the screaming anymore " ? Even if you overwhelm the dam and cause it to blow ?

Any fool knows a earth dam is NEVER supposed to be filled more than 2/3 full, the earth becomes saturated. the plans all require many overflows, spillways and other emergency mechanisms for rainfall loads. its all required by law. this failure was a failure of leadership and i am talking about the communist governor .  the government forced the levels higher for different reasons, why isn't there a massive outrage over this huge failure, Whitmer is too busy taking barbers licenses and kissing up to Biden to take care of the state !! or maybe she wanted this to happen for some sick political reason. who knows,the fact is this was a management failure period. the dam performed, look at the video the water level is at the top. that should NEVER happen to a earth dam !!

The dam was in trouble to begin with but the nail in the coffin was the lakefront home owners who went to court to have the lake level raised. I wonder how many wish they hadn't won.
