The Project includes three separate phases. Phase 1 proposes removal of 1.5 MCY of sediment. Construction is anticipated to start in late 2025 with
site preparation and vegetation removal, and sediment removal activities are anticipated to start in spring 2026. Phase 1 is planned to be
implemented over a period of up to five years. Phase 2 proposes removal of the amount of sediment sufficient to restore 8.0 MCY of storage
capacity in the reservoir, currently estimated to be up to 4.0 MCY. Phase 3 of the Project will involve establishing a long-term sediment maintenance
program for removing approximately 1.1 MCY of sediment approximately every 10 years to reduce the need for future large-scale projects. The
Phase 3 long-term sediment maintenance program is anticipated to begin in Spring of 2041. The proposed Project would restore flood management
and water conservation capacity to the reservoir, increase the reliability of operations and safety of Pacoima Dam, and create a long-term and
reliable means of access to the reservoir. The following proposed activities would occur annually during the non-storm season (April 16 to October
14): Reservoir Access, Reservoir Dewatering, Sediment Excavation, Sediment Transportation, and Sediment Placement.
