OROVILLE, Calif.- With water levels continuing to rise in Lake Oroville, officials say they do not expect to use the new spillway on the dam.
The Department of Water Resources says Lake Oroville's levels are coming in at 773 feet and could rise to around 780 feet by the end of the month.
The main spillway would be used when water levels reach at least 813 feet and if and when that happens, the department says the main spillway will be able to handle flood control releases.
