SITE-DEVELOPMENT PERMIT (SDP) to allow for the City of San Diego (City) Public
Utilities Department (PUD) to implement the Dam Maintenance Program (Project) consisting of oversight and maintenance activities at 13 of the City's dams, Dulzura Conduit, and associated infrastructure located throughout San Diego County. PUD owns and manages 13 dams, spillways, and associated infrastructure, including the approximately 13-mile Dulzura Conduit. These facilities are part of the City's drinking water infrastructure and are subject to the regulatory jurisdiction of the Division of
Safety of Dams (DSOD), which is part of the California Department of Water Resources. The DSOD oversees dam safety in California with the goal of avoiding dam failure which could lead to potential loss of life and destruction of property. As part of the dam safety program, the DSOD completes detailed inspections and reports of the City's dams to identify on-going issues such as vegetation removal, grading, dredging, and repairs to infrastructure and may request certain maintenance work to
be performed to improve dam safety. The proposed Dam Maintenance Program (Program) would cover maintenance activities that are routinely included in these DSOD inspection reports.
