I have lived by the Feather River in Northern California for many years. When the spillway “incident” happened at the Oroville Dam in February of 2017, I became much more interested in the history of the Feather River. Since then, I have decided to more or less “specialize” in the Feather River. That is leading me down a very interesting path of learning about lakes, rivers, dams, levees, and other parts of the amazing water systems that make up the California Water Project.
The header photo above was taken from a postcard in my personal collection showing the early days of the Edward Hyatt Power Plant at the Oroville Dam.
