A river runs through it: Water allowed to flow through Bakersfield to accommodate dam repairs upstream
Water flowing from Isabella Lake serves as a refreshing reminder that the Kern River does run through Bakersfield — sometimes, anyway, and not always because there’s been a recent abundance of rain or snowfall. … It may be worth noting that the Kern is running not because this has been a particularly wet year (it hasn’t been), but because of work the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is doing to shore up a dam upstream.
