About the Topic

Jesse Dillon was assigned to respond and assess the damage to the flood control spillway at Lake Oroville when it first became apparent on February 7, 2017. Mr. Dillon will share his first-hand knowledge of the Oroville Spillway Emergency Response.  He will present on the structural objectives and challenges experienced in the 2017 Oroville Spillways Recovery Project - Phase I, which he served as Structures Design Team Lead and Engineer of Record.

Michael Rogers was brought on to lead the Roller Compacted Concrete design effort for the Oroville Spillways Recovery Project. He will present on the innovative techniques developed and lessons learned on what became the key Phase I design feature (the 1100 ft. long enriched RCC chute invert). This design and associated features were undertaken in order to prepare the Project to be able to pass expected annual flood flows by the next wet year cycle, beginning on November 1, 2017.
