The Department of Water Resources (DWR) conducted the third Phillips Station snow survey of 2019.
DWR is closely monitoring Oroville reservoir levels and current forecasts. DWR will update the public, media and local partners through emails, news releases and social media.
With recent storms increasing runoff into Lake Oroville, DWR is monitoring lake levels and taking steps to prepare in the event the newly reconstructed main spillway needs to be used. However, at this time DWR does not anticipate using the main spillway to manage lake levels and inflows in the immediate term.
As a result of improved water supply conditions, DWR today announced an increase in 2019 State Water Project (SWP) allocations.
DWR announced final decisions for groundwater basin boundary modifications requested by local agencies as part of the implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).
