It has been a rare sight to see the Lake Oroville water levels be so high. In the last recent years, the water levels have been very low and have sunken to new depths. While this has brought out a new view of the lake bottom, it was a little concerning to see our water source being dried up. A good news for a change has brought lake levels to their near potential capacity. It has been a sight we haven't seen for a couple years and is nice to see again.
