Mar 18, 2017
Repair costs for the troubled Oroville Dam will run 'much higher' than $200 million, official says
Costs for repairs at the troubled Oroville Dam will be “much higher” than an initial estimate of $100 million to $200 million, a state water official said Friday.
Final plans for how to repair the reservoir’s massive spillway — which eroded and fractured last month, leading to a major crisis — are still weeks away, according to Bill Croyle, acting director for the Department of Water Resources.
