In 2017 the second tallest earthen dam in the world – at Oroville, CA – released water over its main spillway for the first time in 65 years resulting in a catastrophic failure.

The eyes of the international press and engineering world were upon them. Learn how DWR, the contractor, and state and federal regulators leveraged IPI’s best innovative partnering practices to accomplish a near-impossible mission.
