The Department of Water Resources announced today it has met its goal of repairing and reconstructing the main gated flood control spillway at Lake Oroville to handle flows this winter.
A primary objective of the Lake Oroville Spillways Emergency Recovery Project was to prepare the main spillway for the rainy season.
After massive construction the first phase has now been completed that rebuilt and strengthened more than 2,700 feet of the 3,000 foot long main spillway.
More than 600 Kiewit Infrastructure West workers, many of them from Butte County have put in over 720,000 hours to date since May this year to deliver the first phase of this project.
The construction of the cut-off wall downhill of the emergency spillway is scheduled to be completed by the end of January 2018.

Throw on a jacket and grab those sunglasses as you're heading out the door Monday morning. We have brisk temperatures to start the day, but will end up sunny and warm for your Monday afternoon. We'll get even warmer mid week. A modest drop in temperatures and the potential for showers will finally return for your weekend.
