- Sugar Pine Project: Water Right 15375 Extension and Radial Gates Installation
- The proposed project would install radial gates in the existing spillway of the Sugar Pine Dam and implement changes in Sugar Pine Reservoir operations. The project would also extend FPUD's Water Right Permit 15375. Sugar Pine Reservoir is located on North Shirttail Creek in Tahoe National Forest approximately nine miles north of the community of Foresthill. The dam and reservoir are owned and operated by FPUD. The project would raise the reservoir's maximum water level 20 vertical feet and help secure water supply necessary to serve the community of Foresthill by increasing the maximum reservoir storage capacity from approximately 6,922 acre-feet to 10,872 acre-feet. The action would inundate approximately 44 acres of Tahoe National Forest land and require the replacement or modification of various US Forest Service recreational facilities.
