State and Federal Agencies Were Warned About Oroville Dam Flaws

State water officials were warned about flaws in the dam structure twenty years ago by environmental groups but brushed the cautions aside. Ron Stork of Friends of the River and Roger Bales of UC Merced discuss the current and future challenges of the state's water system. Pacifica's Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
