OROVILLE, Calif. - The Department of Water Resources is continuing to release water from Lake Oroville into the Feather River as of Sunday.
These are the current reservoir level estimates:
Current Oroville reservoir level: 859 feet elevation
Total releases to the Feather River: 35,000 cfs
Water is flowing through the low-flow channel in the City of Oroville at 23,000 cfs. Weather could change these estimates. The reservoir level dropped by one foot from Saturday.
“DWR continues to closely monitor lake inflow levels and will adjust releases accordingly,” DWR said.
Additionally, Oro Dam Boulevard E. between Rusty Dusty Road and Canyon Drive in Butte County is still closed due to water spray from the main spillway.
Drivers can still access Oroville Dam and the State Recreation Area via State Route 162 and Canyon Drive.
