Document Description
The California Department of Water Resources and t he United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation are proposing the B.F. Sisk Dam Safety of Dams Modification Project to address dam stability and safety concerns. These concerns are associated with several sections of the B.F. Sisk Dam and select foundation materials that the dam was built upon. The Project alternatives analyzed in t his joint Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report would help prevent destabilization of t he dam embankment, reduce safety concerns, and maintain water supply deliveries to State and Federal contractors in the event of seismic activity.
