Lake Oroville nears record low

Nov 13, 2014 11:10 AM by News Staff

The lack of heavy rain is continuing to take a toll on lake levels across the North State, and some sections of Lake Oroville are nearly dry.

State officials are releasing 6 to 7 inches a day from Lake Oroville to flow down the Feather River, and with no rains to replenish it... the lake is dropping every single day.

It's now at 650 feet above sea level, which is only 4 feet away from the all-time record low of 646 feet set back in 1977.

Boaters on the lake have been limited in terms of access and last month, all boat launches on the lake were closed with the exception of the spillway.
