High water levels on Stony Creek

Orland, CA – Stony Creek is experiencing higher than normal water levels due to runoff from recent storms as well as releases from Black Butte Dam. Increased flows on Stony Creek have caused some erosion of the riverbed and caused water to encroach further on to property than seen in the past in areas of Orland including in the vicinity of Stony Creek subdivision.
