Document Description
Note: Extended Per Lead The proposed sites reservoir project would consist of a new offstream storage reservoir with a capacity of up to 1.9 MAF. The sites reservoir would be approximately 12,000-14,000 acres in size and would be created by inundating the area around the unincorporated community of sites, CA, which is referred to locally as Antelope Valley. Up to eleven dams would be needed to create the proposed sites reservoir. There would be two main dams: the Golden Gate Dam on Funks Creek, and the sites dam on Stone Corral Creek. The sites reservoir project also would include an inlet/outlet structure; a pumping plant, electrical switchyard and overhead power lines; and a tunnel approximately 4,030 feet in length connecting the pumping plant to the reservoir.
