El Dorado Forebay Piezometer Installation
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Federal energy Regulatory Commission requires that EID install additional piezometers in El Dorado Forebay Dam along the maximum section. The purpose of this action is to better assess the effects of the foundation drain on the piezometric levels in the lower portion of the embankment fill and to verify the downward gradients apparent at existing piezometers. To facilitate installation of the piezometers, a drill rig will drill 5 vertical holes through the embankment dam in order to install the piezometers. The work is expected to be completed beginning October 26, 2009.
