Danger at Table Rock Dam

Recommended Posts

Okay, I am new on here but cannot help but do the math. So many variables to the rising water if taney dam goes but here is the basics.

Taneycomon 2080 surface acres = 2080x43560 sq ft/acre = 90604800 cu. ft x 20 ft deep =1812096000 cu. ft of water in Taney Como

Bull Shoals 43,000 sufrace acres =43000x43560 sqft/acre = 1873080000 cu ft in 1 foot deep water in the lake. SO>>>>>>>>

If taney bursts, you can see that the you can divide the larger Bull shoals by the smaller taney como cut ft and its 1.034 raise in Bull shoals.

Of course the initial rush would be devastating to lake side shores and cabins and would make a huge wave ahead of the surge. Depends on if it failed all at once.

Okay you engineers, get out your calculators and see what you get.

If Taney "bursts" I don't think it would cause that much of a problem, not as big as it sounds, cause Taney's level and BS's level is pretty much the same. Now if Table Rock or Beaver broke, that'd be a different story.

Are you certain that the entire area would be 20 feet deep? ok as a simplifying assumption, but in reality, wouldn't some of those acres be somewhat shallower? That'd throw off the calcs a bit.

My point is that we are starting to "live in fear" because of the media attention. To me that's falling into the hands of those who do these things. That's what they want.

Well said Terry, I think you hit the nail on the head...The media everyday presents us with doom & gloom and most believe it.

By the time the water made it around the curves and spread out the power would be severly impacted and have no effect on Bull Shoals Dam. Beside the fact that B Shoals being at flood stage and Taney being as mentioned only about 30 feet higher at this point than the headwaters of Bull.

Yep if Beaver or TR popped then there would be trouble.
