TRINITY COUNTY, Calif. - Releases from the Trinity Dam are expected to ramp up again this week after a massive oil spill clean-up.
The oil leak, discovered at the at Trinity Dam Power Plant last Monday, is now fully cleaned up.
Officials with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation said the leak, which was from a hallow jet valve, dumped about 500 gallons of oil into the Trinity River above the Lewiston Dam.
River flows were reduced to help with repairs and to help efforts to contain the oil with booms, to prevent it from reaching the fish hatchery at Lewiston.
