In The Bee op-ed Environmentalists block path to future (March 12, Page A9), Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Elk Grove, suggested solutions to Californias continuous water shortage. Two of the possible solutions were the completion of Auburn Dam near Sacramento and completing Shasta Dam to its design elevation.
(1) Wasnt Auburn Dam abandoned because engineers found that there was no bottom and therefore little strength at the dams base?
(2) I watched Shasta Dam being built, and this was the first time Ive read or heard that Shasta was not built to 100 percent of possible capacity.
