Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The proposed authorization would allow the Conservancy to disburse up to $500,000 for engineering and environmental studies to evaluate the feasibility of and develop a strategy for removing San Clemente Dam on the Carmel River in Monterey County. As discussed in the January 18, 2007 Executive Officer's report to the Coastal Conservancy (Exhibit 2), San Clemente Dam is an obsolete structure that no longer serves a water supply function and could fail in the event of a maximum flood or earthquake. According to the Department of Water Resources (DWR) Division of the Safety of Dams, it poses a significant threat to downstream lives and property.
