Nice work, I had this thought also, that it is not just Oroville…but the feeders.

Horrible when they turn cams off.

Hush, hush about Lake Almanor on DWR’s website. They kept throwing me into archives, which is not what I wanted. So I tried a Google search. Tied to weed things out! 😤

Plumas County: Above-Normal Water Levels at Lake Almanor, Bucks Lake – PG&E CurrentsPG&E Currents.

Excerpt: PG&E projects Lake Almanor levels will reach approximately 4,491 feet elevation by July 4, which is about three feet higher than normal for that date. The level is projected to be approximately 4,485 feet by Labor Day.

even that is from 2018(!)
PG&E is hiding something.
It is useful to call them out.
I too had terrible problems trying to load webpages with the data….

I read that one ….
Why is this dam a ‘ghost’ on the internet?? There should be lots more on it.

PG&E seems to control all of the information I have found thus far.

Lake Almanor, Bucks Lake expected to have high lake levels.
Excerpt: It[PG&E] also said that precipitation for the season to date in the Lake Almanor basin is at 129 percent of average, and the spring runoff is forecast to be 168 percent of average.

the watch group vid had nothing new. We already have all that info posted here.
The 2nd vid is from the 15th and is pretty useless. Just the weather report, we had covered already. That P.R. stuff is about all that comes up on search engines these days.

Now you have the lake levels to 05.14. I know, today’s date is 05.25. Don’t show realtime data for a reason, with a little skepticism on the actual data.
