With sensors recording almost 5 inches of rainfall, Lake Oroville reached peak water levels this week.

After being effected severely by the drought, the lake rose more than 20 feet after 3 nights of consistent rainfall.

The last time the lake was at this capacity was August 2013, when it was measured at 792 feet. The measurement this week records the level at 83 perecent of historical average.

Lake Oroville has gained national attention in recent months, becoming a face to the drought crisis in California.
