Spillway test at Oroville.


  1. Wow. I know it was a lot of work shoring up what's left of the spillway and clearing the channel of all the debris. I figured they'd still be at it. I'm surprised there's actually water coming down the spillway below the hole.

    Anyone know what the minimum height is for water to flow through the spillway?

  2. Amazing! Glad to see they've done such a great job, so quickly! Those folks below the dam can breathe a bit easier now (if I was there, I'd still be looking to move, though.)

    And thanks, CW, for keeping us informed on the Oroville Dam situation. It's been fascinating!
