    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.

    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 !!
