Document Description
The Forebay is a component of the El Dorado Hydroelectric Project, which is owned and operated by EID and licensed by FERC as FERC Project No. 184. EID operates Project No. 184. The El Dorado Forebay Dam modification project is required to satisfy specific state and federal dam safety mandates. Additionally, the project would improve the reliability of the drinking water supply and minimize impacts on EID ratepayers through optimized power generation revenue. The project involves constructing an earthen stability buttress on the dry side of the Forebay Dam, raising the Forebay Dam 10 vertical feet, and remediating associated facilities.
