The California Department of Water Resources restarted the outflow from the Lake Oroville flood control spillway on Wednesday morning (May 11, 2017) at 9 a.m. beginning with water flows at 1,000 cubic feet per second and holding at 30,000 cfs by 1:20 p.m. The water flowed into the Feather River. The agency said it is lowering the reservoir to a level that will provide ample flood control storage through the run-off season so that construction of the spillway can begin as soon as possible.
