Hello! I'm an engineer by profession and a whitewater kayaker hence the name "Eddyhopr". I like to dig into technical info in my spare time when an issue like the Oroville spillway occurs and learn something new outside of my area of expertise along the way. I've been enjoying reading the threads on the Oroville spillway incident for the past week plus. Someone like me was reading the ongoing Oroville threads (he called it "lurking") and then finally had something to contribute and joined the discussion. I prefer to think of myself as riding alongside in the back of the Metabunk peloton and benefiting from those riding ahead of me. I finally have some info to add to the Oroville discussion so it's time to join. Thanks!
