Sacramento, CA – In a letter to the Department of Water Resources, the State Water Contractors today extends its deep appreciation to the Department of Water Resources staff, who have worked tirelessly to repair the main Oroville Dam spillway and successfully meet today’s deadline for securing the Dam’s spillway in advance of the winter storm season.

“The Department of Water Resources team has exemplified a selfless commitment to public service. The staff’s swift efforts to address this emergency and secure the State’s critical State Water Project infrastructure has been nothing short of extraordinary.”
