Water levels in California’s Lake Oroville reservoir are expected to fall so low this summer that officials expect they will need to shut down its hydroelectric power plant for the first time in its 54-year history. The unrelenting drought and record-breaking heat, both fueled by climate change, have pushed the reservoir to what officials describe as “alarming levels.” The plant generates enough electricity to power up to 800,000 homes.
