Oroville Spillways Recovery Construction Updates
Kiewit Infrastructure West Co., the contractors rebuilding the Oroville spillways, ramped up construction work on May 22. Recovery efforts include work on both the main flood control spillway and the emergency spillway, with the objective to get the main spillway operational by November 1 to accommodate flows from winter storms. Work will resume in 2018 to complete the multiple phases of construction needed to complete the reconstruction of both spillways.

Before the spillway flows were shut off, DWR and Kiewit got a head start on construction efforts with road construction and slope stabilization in and around future work areas.

The public can watch a live video feed of construction activities from two cameras with rotating views. For more information, visit the Oroville Spillway Incident page.
