Project: Finnon Lake Restoration and Habitat Improvement Project

Description: The Project will reconstruct a seismic deficient embankment and provide an earth embankment water storage reservoir with approximately 350-400 acre-feet of capacity. The Project includes a significant amount of earthwork, constructed outlet, concrete and steel reinforcement for appurtenant components. The existing dam embankment material will be removed, dried, and stockpiled. There is approximately 100,000 cubic yards in the existing dam. The re-constructed dam will be 49 feet high from the downstream toe to the crest of the spillway. There will be 4 feet of freeboard above the spillway crest making a total height of 53 feet.
