Report: Oroville Dam Could Present "Significant Risk"

The Oroville Dam will pose a "very significant risk" if repairs to its main spillway are not done by the fall rainy season.

That is the conclusion of a report from federal investigators, which was not specific about what the risk was.

200,000 people were evacuated in mid-February when the Oroville Dam's emergency spillway began to erode.

Water was allowed to pour over the emergency spillway for the first time ever after a huge hole opened up in the main spillway.
