Folsom Dam Flood Operations

MBK has supported SAFCA on Folsom Dam flood operations and infrastructure development by providing technical support for the Joint-Federal Project (JFP) Auxiliary Spillway construction, Water Control Manual revision at Folsom Dam, and the ongoing Folsom Dam Raise Project. This has included close coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation in the development of the reservoir’s operating rules and vetting of those with the other project partners and stakeholders. With analysis and strategic advice, MBK has helped develop for the WCM revision to include FIRO, the first formal operation allowed to use this cutting-edge strategy that is currently being evaluated for many other dams statewide.
