Update 4: Possible Upstream Landslide to Trigger Dam Collapse (如上游滑坡会瞬间引起溃决) - Landslide Dam Removal at Tangjiashan "Quake Lake"

Within the upstream "quake lake" area, a massvie mountain slope is at risk of sliding down. If the upstream landslide does occur, a huge surge will be created in the lake, leading to an instant collapse of the existing landslide dam. This was warned by Mr. Liu Ning (family name given name), the Chief Engineer of China Ministry of Water Resources.

Hey, friend. Siphoning is the only way out of this mess. Multiple big bore plastic pipes.

Good luck.
