Sunday's historic rainfall across Sacramento put a new underground reservoir in McKinley Park to the test. The highly contested McKinley Water Vault was built by the city to help reduce flooding in Sacramento's McKinley Park neighborhood. The City of Sacramento's Department of Utilities said the 6-million gallon vault was full by 5:30 in the evening Sunday during the storm. The neighborhood around McKinley Park experienced street flooding when water began overflowing from out of the storm drains. By 9:40 p.m., the vault began to empty. As of Tuesday evening, pumps had reduced the water level inside the vault to about eight feet of water. The city says the vault is 18 feet at its deepest point and expects the vault to be nearly empty of water by Wednesday.

The hydroelectric power plant at Lake Oroville that was shut down due to low water levels from the drought could power back on if lake elevation allows, according to the California Department of Water Resources. This announcement comes after the winter storm that brought several inches of rain to Northern California over the weekend. The lake rose about 20 feet, but even with the surge in runoff, the power plant remains offline. Officials with the department said demand for electricity is low right now, and there’s still maintenance on the plant. Once that’s done, Oroville could start generating power by December.
