Lake Oroville, CA
Oroville 2014
Oroville 2012
Oroville Dam in Northern California is an earth fill embankment dam, and is the tallest dam in the U.S. Lake Oroville is the second largest man-made lake in the state of California. The lake’s capacity reflects the large swings in California’s annual rainfall accumulation. With the reality of a very dry 2020-21 rain year, the 2014 data may anticipate this year’s water shortage. On May 7, 2012, the lake held 3.5 million acre-feet of water, and was at maximum capacity. Two years later, on August 1, 2014, the lake held 1.2 million acre-feet of water, threatening the water supply to users of its water. The images cover an area of 22.5 by 23.4 km, and are located at 39.6 degrees north, 121.5 degrees west.
