Droughts in California have led Lake Oroville’s water levels to drop dramatically, according to the California Department of Water Resources. Photos show quite how drastically the water level in the lake has dropped: in 2019, the lake water sits right up by the treeline, while now, there is a significant amount of bank between the water and the trees. In 2021, the lake, which is north of Sacramento, nearly dried up entirely.
