Just like Center Hill (Caney Fork) they didn't knowingly build the dam over a volatile karst formation. I think I remember from geology classes that sometimes karst formation appear fairly stable then over time shift and change, we do live in a shifting changing world.
As much as I think the federal govt is completely incompetent at basically everything they touch, other then military stuff. I seriously doubt they would have risked millions of lives, and trillions of destruction with a building site on a less then adequate substrate.
Sh*t happens, and hopefully things will work out, but for now it sure seems bleak.
