March 10th Severe Weather Disaster Information

Updated 3/13/2023 10:21am

Springville is an unincorporated community which relies on County, State, and Federal resources to guide us during disasters.

We provide these informational references here to make it easier to navigate these difficult times. Please email us any information you believe should be listed here. We do our best to provide as much as we can.

Road Safety

Road & Bridge Closures (Regularly Updated):

Success Lake / Schafer Dam Status

Success Lake had reached capacity and the spillway routed the overflow safely into the Tule channels. Currently the water has dropped below spillway level. The US Army Corp and Water Boards are keeping oversight on the water levels and are working to rapidly lower reservoir water levels, expand emergency capacity, and mitigate downstream impacts. Currently the estimated snowpack in the mountain ranges are estimated to be 267% compared to average this during time of year. There is plenty more snow to melt and residents upstream and downstream should remain vigilant and prepared.

Tulare County Property Damage Form:

It is wise to also contact the County RMA office directly to ask for information. It can take a while to be granted necessary resources to fix property damage, and requires significant public demand from those impacted. If you have property affected by this event, please be sure to reach the county RMA.
