OROVILLE UPDATE: Spillway Work Continues, Construction Update

OROVILLE UPDATE: Spillway Work Continues, Construction Update.
The following is an update from the Department of Water Resources (DWR) about construction-related activities on the Lake Oroville Spillways Recovery project.
DWR is committed to informing the public about the work being done to repair the damaged spillways and related impacts to roads, recreation, public access and surrounding infrastructure.
DWR is improving construction access to the gated (main) spillway for construction activities by using controlled blasting to remove portions of the exposed rock.
These releases will lower Lake Oroville levels and continue making space for expected snowmelt.
The gates are anticipated to close between May 20-25 to allow for critical construction work on the main spillway.
This is expected and will not delay construction.
