Oroville Dam Spillway Briefing for March 17

The Oroville Dam's main spillway is flowing for the first time in more than two weeks.  Department of Water Resources officials say they're ramping-up the outflows to 50-thousand cubic-feet-per-second.  Work crews have cleared out more than one-point-two-million cubic yards of debris from the diversion pool at the base of the spillway since February 27th.  The release is expected to push up Feather River levels ten-to-15-feet, but no flooding is expected.
