Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The proposed authorization would allow the Conservancy to disburse up to $6,000,000 for preparation of final design plans and permitting assistance for the San Clemente Dam Removal Project on the Carmel River in Monterey County. California American Water (CAW) has agreed to contribute half of the project design and permitting costs (to be counted against its total project commitment of approximately $50 million), based on the project Memorandum of Understanding, discussed below. The San Clemente Dam is owned and operated by CAW and no longer serves a water supply function. In the 1990s, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) Division of the Safety of Dams, determined the dam could fail in the event of a maximum flood or earthquake, thereby posing a significant threat to downstream lives and property.
