Sacramento, CA — A delicate dance involving huge volumes of water has minimized flooding caused by heavy early-spring rains.
Reservoir operators and flood-control officials have coordinated their work closely, to keep river flows below flood stage.
Reservoir operators have sent higher flows down river before storms, and then greatly reduced flows while it rained.
Farmland that often floods during high water flows has been the only ground affected so far.
