Engineers (http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-live-updates-oroville-dam-oroville-dam-spillway-expected-to-fail-1486953074-htmlstory.html) began working on repairs Monday to the damaged concrete chute

On the truck front: a Peterbilt Model 567 SFFA premiered, prior to delivery to Cemex (note opposite page); a Swedish equipment manufacturer, MTM, showed the telescoping EZExtenz Concrete Chute
(opposite page and page 42), a 30--ft.
Dry and apparently benign most of the time, this concrete chute

A challenge was busting through old concrete chutes
in front of many buildings that funneled delivered coal into people's basements.
Similarly, in the wake of catastrophes such as Hurricane Katrina, the wisdom of channeling rivers through concrete chutes
