Oroville Reservoir at record low level, California shuts down their second-largest hydroelectric plant
he Oroville Reservoir reached a record low level of 195.66 m (641.93 feet) above mean sea level on August 5, 2021, forcing authorities in California to shut down their second-largest hydroelectric plant.
- This is now the lowest level since the nation's tallest dam was completed in 1967 and the first time the hydroelectric plant was shut down due to lack of water.
- The old record was 196.59 m (645 feet) set in 1977.
The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) State Water Project operations managers have taken the Hyatt Powerplant at Lake Oroville offline due to falling lake levels, California DWR Director Karla Nemeth said in a statement.
"This is the first time Hyatt Powerplant has gone offline as a result of low lake levels." [https://watchers.news/2021/08/06/oroville-reservoir-record-low-level-california/]
