According to Midland County officials as of ~3pm (EST) 5/20/2020, the Sanford dam may still be somewhat intact but they can't tell because it's underwater (they're using the term "failed" because it's spilling over, not necessarily because the structure has collapsed). Latest images of the Sanford dam appear to show overflow limited to the emergency spillway area. The current hope is that the dam itself will hold long enough for the upstream flow from the Wixom lake breach to recede. If the Sanford dam fails, areas downstream are looking at 500-year flood levels. Local and state police have already begun staging in a number of downstream areas, presumably to facilitate evacuations if the dam fails.

What no one seems to be paying attention to is how the dams work you see what happens is when the storm comes in the lake gets deep the alarms go off did you hear that part of the alarms go off and when the alarms are ignored you create a flood and a problem for the news to switch subjects! The problem I’m seeing is no one is mentioning about the people working at the dams letting the alarms run or shutting the alarms off without opening the doors and letting the lake out! Am I the only one who has ever seen how Adam works or do you just say the word damn a lot and you think you know about damns dammit!!!You’re all still leaning towards accident or natural wake the fk up🙏🙏🙏 WWG1WGA

@hay woods it seems to me that buildiing permits on the flood plains should never have been issued. Supervisors eager to increase the tax base must bear some responsibility. But greed turns a deaf ear to common sense.

Great pictures and overall story. But what the pictures don’t tell is that when the Edenville dam ruptured, the water didn’t go over the TOP of the earthen berm, but rather the water pushed its way THROUGH the MIDDLE of the berm, and the top of the berm simply collapsed. So that section of the dam was completely gone within a matter of roughly one minute. One of the most incredible statistics of the whole thing is that there were zero casualties as a DIRECT result of the flooding (there have, however, been a few casualties involving people who suffered medical complications while evacuating, so I am loathe to say that there have been no casualties at all). That says A LOT for our emergency services here in Midland County. FYI: I grew up and live just two miles from the Edenville dam.

Thanks for the best report I have seen on those dam failures. I am shocked see the cascade failures. It seems to me that the failure of one dam should not lead to the failure of the next one downstream. The whole world should learn a lesson from this. I live in Ireland but I am addicted to all the news from the US.

My wife and I lost our home in the Umatilla river flood of February 6 through 8 2020. We will NEVER EVER live in a flood plain again. We were there for a about 19 years. It seemed fine at the time , but now, in retrospect, it's hard to see why we even considered living there in the first place.

500 year flooding, this looks like something written in the scriptures that would happen in the future from those writings back then. those are man made lakes unnatural to the creator, something isnt being talked about of why this broke. flooding just does'nt happen, everything was fine the day before this flooding happened, i am sure a warning of a malfunction in those systems those engineers would have known something wasnt working properly way sooner then to neglect it as if it looks ok. this is something else cause this flooding is happening faster then anyone can get a handle on, people will be flooded out of the communities much will be destroyed and much lost due to this mysterious unexplained flooding. 500 years and all of a sudden its flooding!!!!!! did the Almighty Creator cause this with the wave of his hand, and the question is why? does this go back to Tecumseh and the wars here in the 5 lakes, we all know that the universal laws were'nt created by religion or the order of Man over Man like its Now, something big is happening thats is out of the control of Man strange things are going on people, much suffering is happening on a slow movement and Man isnt in control of these movements of the Earth...500 year flood levels, sounds like the mud floods dont it....

yes the owners of the dams have been trying to get the ok to lower the water level but since the state didn't give them the go a head they had to raise the water level back up, they were and are suing in federal court to get to lower the water level for the past few years.

i live on Lake Michigan and the water level has been the highest its been in years, so much erosion happens every day, i walk daily along the lake and see mudslides constantly and the water is brown because of all the mud going into the lake from the waves crashing the shoreline. I think there is more flooding to come this year for the Great Lakes area and the rivers in the Midwest.

I'm from this area in Michigan, my daughter lives within half mile of Wixom Lake. I heard that the reason for all the water in Wixom Lake is because the upper two dams were breached. Can anybody confirm this?

DA62 Owner

Sally Bridges I hope your daughter came through the event safely. The problem was a court order preventing the lake levels from being lowered as was the usual procedure prior to a significant rain event. The levels in the upper two lakes compounded the problem when they started to spill over the spillway. The upper two dams were not breached though and are still holding water. There were four dams in all and it was the lower two dams which failed.

I heard the State of Michigan forced the dam owners to keep the water high for the wild life, and the home owners on the lake. They (the State of Michigan) should be in part responsible for this mess. It seems as though we always want to blame the owners and not the government.

Boyce had their licenses pulled (some years back) to generate power, but were forbidden from lowering the water levels in these reservoirs, as it would have impacted the waterfront property values, and therefore property tax revenues. There is a lot of finger pointing right now.

This dam was lowered last fall. I wonder if allowing the earthen portion of the dam to dry out and then soak water back up had any affect to the destabilization? How about with the lowering of the water level over the winter changing to a lower frost line? Could either cause enough heaving to affect the core of the dam before it had a chance to stabilize with the recent (within days) refilling of the dam?

9 күн мурун
DA62 Owner

Donavon Robbins an earth dam will fail if overtopped. An earth dam will also fail if the water is too high causing a hydraulic gradient greater than the dam designers intended. This will cause seepage which leads to piping which leads to catastrophic failure. Once the water level reached the height it did, the failure of the earth dam was inevitable. The dam actually lasted much longer than people thought it would. It was solely the water level in the lake that caused the dam failure.
