Oroville Dam’s partially repaired spillway may be put to the test – CNN

But the agency announced it may have to use the spillway soon because of the weather forecast, even though the “objective for the year has been to minimize use of the main spillway while it is still under construction.”

The Oroville Dam, the nation’s tallest at 770 feet, is about 75 miles north of Sacramento and provides flood control for the region.
