Crews To Halt Oroville Spillway Use For Ongoing Repairs

May 16, 2017

Water flowing down the damaged spillway at Lake Oroville will once again be shut off as crews work to fix the structure.


The California Department of Water Resources says it decreased the amount of water being released from the reservoir today.


A full shutdown of the spillway is expected sometime between Saturday and the middle of next week.


Crews are gearing up for a major project to overhaul or replace the structure starting this summer and extending into next year.  Copyright 2017 Capital Public Radio
