They were talking about this on KUOW the other day, and the geologist they interviewed seemed to think that was super risky. Like it could cause slides on other parts of the ridge.Looks like Union Gap could end up being a lake. From the pics I've seen there doesn't seem to be much doubt that it's coming down. Seems to me it might be logical to blast the hillside with explosives. Once and done and if planned no one should be hurt. Seems in this case deciding when it happens would be better than waiting. They could deploy all the removal equipment etc. and attempt limiting the blockage time by creating a path for the water to flow through. Waiting and then reacting seems like the wrong way to go. Maybe lay some Yuge tubing before hand so the river doesn't get completely blocked.
