February 14, 2017 9:41 AM – Oroville Dam Status Remains Stable – Update with the Latest Information from our Emergency Operations Center

February 14, 2017 9:41 AM

• There remains no imminent threat to Natomas

•The water level in the Oroville Reservoir has dropped to 7 feet below the top of the auxiliary spillway, so this spillway remains intact and is not at risk of failure as it is remaining high and dry.

• Water from the reservoir being released at a rate of 100,000 cubic feet per second.

• Evacuation orders are still in effect in Butte, Sutter and Yuba Counties.

• Cal Expo remains open as an evacuation center with Red Cross staffing.

•We are coordinating closely with county, state and federal agencies including the National Weather Service in monitoring the current situation and for preparedness for rains later this week. We will keep you posted as needed.

It is always good to have a plan, but as of now, the City of Sacramento is not in any imminent danger.
