19000 Large amounts of farmland will be innundated downstream from the dam to the confluence with the Snake River. Houses near Owyhee Junction will be flooded. Water will cover portions of Oregon Highway 201.
17500 Significant flooding is likely downstream from the dam especially in the vicinity of Owyhee Junction. Water will cover portions of Highway 201.
15500 Floodwater will cover roads near Owyhee Junction. Some houses near Owyhee Junction will be flooded. Floodwater will cover portions of Highway 201 near Owyhee Junction cutting off access between Adrian and Nyssa.
12500 Floodwater will approach houses near Owyhee Junction. Farmland between the dam and Owyhee Junction will be flooded. Flooding will be about 1 foot deep near the Overstreet Bridge.
10000 Flooding will occur downstream from the dam with farmland adjacent to the river underwater. Water may spill over portions of Overstreet Road below Owyhee Dam. Water will approach the bottom of the Highway 201 Bridge near the town of Owyhee.
