Sacramento Weir Opened Due To Storm

Due to the ongoing storm in the area, the gates to the Sacramento Weir have been opened for the first time in over a decade.

According to CBS Sacramento, the weir was opened at about 4:30am this morning in order to alleviate pressure on the Sacramento River levees. This will help divert water to the Yolo Bypass instead.

Seven gates were opened in total, and had to be completed manually with a pole.
