The Sacramento metropolitan area is considered among the highest flood risks in the nation, and flooding in the area could impact upwards of 440,000 people and impact an estimated $58 billion in property. The Folsom Dam Raise project consists of the selected 3.5 feet raise of Folsom Dam and reservoir dikes, reconfiguring the Folsom Dam penstocks, ecosystem restoration projects, and the construction of a bridge below Folsom Dam, which has now been completed. Detailed design on the Folsom Raise project is scheduled to be completed in 2015, proceeding in conjunction with the Folsom Dam Modifications Joint Federal Project to ensure the optimum performance and identification of shared opportunities between two projects. Total project amount includes State support costs for project implementation.
