    Work to repair and reconstruct the main spillway at Oroville Dam has been under way since April 2017. By November 1, 2017, the main spillway at Lake Oroville is expected to be ready to handle releases of up to 100,000 cubic feet per second. When fully reconstructed, it's expected to handle 270,000 cfs, according to news reports. This video of the repair progress was posted October 17, 2017.
