Environmentalists said the Oroville Dam crisis was a "wake-up call" for state leaders to fix existing water infrastructure instead of funding new projects, such as a tunnel to divert river water around the San Francisco Bay Delta to consumers in the south.
Billions of dollars are required to improve dam infrastructure in the state, said Adam Scow, California director for environmental group Food & Water Watch. He called for local, state and federal agencies to all pay up.
More than half of California's 1,585 dams would lead to deaths if they failed, putting them in the category of "high hazard potential," according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
