Document Description
EBMUD completed a study of the San Pablo Dam in coordination with the California Division of Safety of Dams in 2004. The study determined that the hydraulic fill material in the embankment and the alluvium foundation underlying the embankment are susceptible to liquefaction. The study showed hat the dam would slump and could decrease in height by as much as 35 feet in a magnitude 7.25 earthquake on the Hayward Fault, allowing water to flow over the top, resulting in downstream flooding. The San Pablo Dam Seismic Upgrade would improve the dam such that it would meet seismic safety requirements by improving foundation materials in place and adding a downstream buttress.
