Oroville Dam – How’s that snow melt in the Sierras?

4 07 2017

We don’t know how the dam is doing since the Live Data page has been konked out for days. <<< UPDATE (7-12) It is back on line ….

They look busy on the LIVE CAM but with all the tearing up it looks like they won’t be able to handle a big out-rush of water.

Oroville Mercury Register – “The Department of Water Resources web page which ordinarily displays reservoir levels has been down a week later due to technical issues, but residents can call the DWR for information in the meantime.

The phone number for Oroville updates is 534-2307. As of Thursday morning, the Lake Oroville surface was at 811.41 feet of the dam’s 901-foot capacity.”

On where’s the snow question


Susan Wolding says,
” Snow is gone in the North but may come back again with Alaska weather flying around up north, may not get close to calif. South is another story as the warm winds from Hurricanes and Tropical Storms climb north and touch the tip of Calif, over and over, poor mammouth, yosemite area looks like Flooding again coming in soon. “
