Some of his examples are pretty misleading actually, and if not done on purpose show at the very least a complete lack of understanding of the topic. 

His bridge example is the Pit River Bridge (which I cross on a regular basis). His first image is a fairly recent aerial image probably taken within the month. His comparison on the other hand is a screen grab from Google Earth by the looks of it, which takes the three dimensional landscape and superimposes satellite imagery  over the top of it. This makes it look like the bridge is right on top of the water. In reality the bottom scaffolding of the bridge is about 50 feet above the water when the lake is full. The lower scaffolding is actually an very active rail line, and in his before image would be completely under water!

His comparison images of the dam itself are totally not Shasta Dam. I have no idea what dam it is, but it aint shasta. Shasta has three large overflows, while that dam has eight smaller ones. Shasta has FIVE penstocks (the huge tubes coming out on the left side) which go directly into the powerhouse, while the dam shown only has three that appear to go straight into the ground. Also the geography around Shasta Dam is not a gentle slope, but steep mountains. Also his dam appears to be a combination earthen and gravity dam, while Shasta is a curved gravity dam (uses the weight of the dam itself to keep the water in).

It doesn't really matter, this is not the worse it's been in the last 10 years, and not even close to what it was back in the late 70's when the lake level was over 100 feet BELOW what it is now. California rainfall goes in cycles, and we're just in the middle of a dryer weather pattern then we've become used to. We're at 54% of historical average volume for this time of year, not even outside of what would be considered statistically normal.
