Which spillway?

I’m unclear, cracks in the main spillway or the emergency overflow off to the left in this view?

The concrete is inundated with rebar as steel reinforcement. I️ doubt there are any steel beams in it. I️ saw it in some shotcrete methods and cast in place methods used.

RCC has metal in it?

After watching them pour RCC on there for months, I never saw metal under the RCC. ( because that's not how RCC works.. How will the metal that's not there erode?
