Sacto Weir To Be Opened For First Time In Years

The rivers and streams around our area continue to rise as water runs down from the mountains, but some of that pressure on the Sacramento River will soon be relieved.

That relief will come with the opening the Sacramento Weir on the West Sacramento side of the river for the first time since January of 2006.

That allows water to flow into the Yolo Bypass with the aim of flood prevention.

It's not clear when those gates will be opened, but the benchmark for the State Department of Water Resources is when the river reaches 29-point-8-7 feet at "I" Street.

This is a developing story.  Check back with for updates.
