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.”
