OROVILLE, Calif. - In a new report released by the Division of Safety Dams, Oroville has received an unsatisfactory rating for the second year in a row. 

In fact, of all 1,200 dams in the report, Oroville was the only one to receive an unsatisfactory rating, which is due to safety deficiencies. 

The Department of Water Resources stated in a construction update on Sept. 5 that they will have structural concrete in place by Nov. 1, which is the Public Safety Construction Milestone.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
