To quote the article:
First of all, why was a dam build with only a 50 year life span? I am tempted to grumble about all of the government's recent massive expenses but I try not to be political online.
I thought about the same thing. What did they plan to do after the 50 years?
The way I understand the article was that downtown Dallas could be under fifty feet of water if the dam fails. I just can not see it. Downtown is not in the flood plain. The warehouses along Riverfront Blvd. will be under water for sure.
