Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

That might be a safety feature. Since inflow from rain is not safely predictable on a longer time frame then about a week it might be prudent to keep some space clear for controlling downstreams conditions. Spilling water at times of massive rain is simple enough for the dam operator but has more externalities then spilling wind.
