2 Dams Illustrate Challenge of Maintaining Older Designs

2 Dams Illustrate Challenge of Maintaining Older Designs

Twelve years ago, widespread destruction from Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast helped compel federal engineers 2,000 miles away in California to remake a 1950s-era dam by constructing a massive steel-and-concrete gutter that would manage surging waters in times of torrential storms.

Together, the two dams illustrate widely diverging conditions at the more than 1,000 dams across California, most of them decades old.

He lost his national security adviser and his pick for labour secretary to scandal. He's seen forces within his government push back against his policies and leak confidential information. All of this has played out amid a steady drip of revelations about an FBI investigation into his campaign's contacts with Russian intelligence officials. But Trump says his administration is running like a "fine-tuned machine."
