Watch a Live Feed of California's Failing Oroville Dam
Brown's plan calls for the high-speed rain to run from the Los Angeles area in the south to San Francisco Bay area in the north.
Weeks of heavy rain had left Lake Oroville - the second largest reservoir in California - almost full, leaving rural communities along the Feather river in danger. But erosion around the spillway has authorities concerned that it could compromise concrete and cause an uncontrolled flow release of water.
Spillage from the dam has stopped as a result of the lower water levels, according to The Associated Press. Officials earlier Sunday stressed the dam itself was structurally sound and said there was no threat to the public. Water began to overtop an emergency spillway and engineers noticed this flow of water was cutting into the land in a way that, if left unchecked, could lead to a catastrophic failure of the emergency spillway.
Trying to head off a disaster, state officials increased the flow down the dam's main spillway on Sunday night. One of the largest construction projects Trump wants to begin within months is the construction of a 1,000-mile, 40-foot-high concrete wall along the USA border with Mexico.

Crews began dumping large 2-ton bags of rocks on the erosion-damaged emergency spillway Monday afternoon.
As of noon Tuesday, the lake had dropped 15 feet to 887.94 feet elevation since it peaked Sunday above capacity at 902.1 feet.
