Calaveras Dam at the beginning of 2017:
We were months into building the dam itself, and the foundation, and outlet pipeline are still above ground.
Calaveras Dam in late 2017:
As you can see from the picture above, we made tremendous progress on construction of the replacement dam itself. The team is more than half way up with the building of the replacement dam, whose final grade you can see rising up more than 110 feet. The foundation and outlet pipe are completely buried now under the new dam.
To date, our project is 89% complete. Our New Year's goal is to have the entire project completed by mid-2019.
From all of us, we wish you and yours a Happy New Year!
See you around the valley!
