    Water Expected to Flow into Lake Oroville Emergency Spillway Soon Oroville, Calif. -- Lake Oroville is expected to rise this morning to the level that allows water to flow down an emergency spillway and into the Feather River, according to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR). The volume of water is expected to pose no flood threat downstream and should remain well within the capacity of the Feather River and other channels to handle. Oroville Dam itself remains safe, and there is no imminent threat to the public.
