River Levels Rise As More Water Released From Keswick And Oroville Dams

Water levels will rise on the Sacramento and Feather Rivers as federal and state authorities release more water from Keswick and Oroville Dams. Thursday morning by 10 a.m., the Bureau of Reclamation will increase releases below Keswick Dam from 20,000 cubic feet per second to 30,000 cfs. Sacramento River levels are expected to increase downstream of Keswick Dam. The increased releases are necessary to meet flood space regulatory requirements within Shasta Reservoir.
