Document Description
The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) is a Responsible Agency for the Project. The State Water Board’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) Program is financing the Project. The Project includes replacement of the existing aging inlet/outlet works in new locations at the Newell Creek Dam and Loch Lomond Reservoir and other associated improvements. Primary components would include three new inlets located within the Reservoir to control and convey flows in and out of the Reservoir, a new outlet structure with valves and controls at the toe of the dam, a new dam seepage collection and monitoring system, a new 14- foot-diameter tunnel containing 48-inch and 10-inch inlet/outlet pipelines through the right (west) dam abutment and under the dam, a new control house on the dam crest to house controls for the inlets, replacement of an approximately 2,000-linear-foot section of Newell Creek Pipeline between the outlet structure and the first isolation valve, improvements along the dam's access roads, and decommission of the existing inlet/outlet works once the replacement system is operational.
