First Day of Spring at Calaveras Dam


John Rocca, our Field Operations Manager for the Calaveras Dam Replacement Project, stands on the second bench of the existing Calaveras Dam.  Behind John is the where the replacement dam is currently being constructed with targeted completion at the end of 2017.

The left side of the photo shows the stilling basin cut, part of the left abutment of the dam where we are excavating and reinforcing the slope. Shown on the right center of the photo, this hill is referred to as the right abutment where excavations are largely complete. Crews are working on treating the foundation of the future dam.
