Document Description
The Project consists of constructing a 10 foot-high concrete ogee weir across the spillway, raising the gross pool elevation from 655.1 feet to 665.1 feet. Raising the gross pool elevation would add approximately 28,000 acre-feet of joint-use flood control and irrigation water storage space in the reservoir, increasing storage capacity from 82,300 to 110,300 acre-feet. The reservoir surface area would increase from 2,400 to 3, 120 acres. In addition, Southern California Edison (SCE) will be required to raise the height of an existing transmission line that crosses the lake. This will involve removal of existing towers and installation of new or replacement transmission towers. Some existing distribution poles and facilities will also need to be replaced, removed or relocated as a result of the Project. Acquisition of ROW and/or private property will be required on surrounding properties.
