Probably did it that way to get a good flushing flow to clear the sediment, remove the terrestrial vegetation along the newly formed banks and set some new channels and islands. Or maybe the head honchos just wanted to blow the damn dam the hell UP!
I watched it live on CNN, even DVR'd it, and loved every dam (pun intended) second of it!!! Yeh, man! Let them sharp toothed, hook kiped salmon boyz about the river
swim way upstream, find them a fine salmon lady
and do the Wild Thang in their newfound luuuuv nest!!!
