  • Spectacular views of Oroville Dam spillway flowing again from trickle to 30,000 cfs

    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.
