Dexter Dam en Drill to Prevent Further Worse Spills <p>Members of the Army Corps of Engineers and EWEB worked together Wednesday in an oil spill response drill at Dexter Dam. The scenario depicted the failure of the dam’s powerhouse transformer, causing 58-hundred gallons of insulating oil to spill into the Middle Fork Willamette River. EWEB and the engineers were joined by fire departments and response teams from the surrounding towns and counties. EWEB spokesman Joe Harwood says the main goal of the exercise was to be prepared ahead of time.</p> Wed, 13 Nov 2013 19:10:55 +0000 Graham Sprague 2997 at Drill to Prevent Further Worse Spills
