The Oroville Dam is not looking pretty.
After days of pouring out an unprecedented 100,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) of water, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) has finally reduced outflows from Oroville Dam from 70,000 cfs to 57,000 cfs Sunday morning.
Officials say they hope to continue slowly decreasing the water release.
However, the dam still needs massive repairs — and a California storm is just beginning to roll in.
DWR Information Officer Chris Orrock said they would be decreasing 5,000 cfs every two hours so levels would be low enough to clear debris and turn the Hyatt power plant back on.
