Alpine Dam Rehabilitation Phase 2

The Alpine earthen dam was constructed during Roosevelt’s “New Deal” era and is in need of rehabilitation. Phase 1 included electrical and mechanical components upgrade and patching and concrete of the spillway. Phase 2 construction will include the construction of an auxiliary earthen spillway as an extra factor of safety for the community. These improvements will allow for the structure to finally be under permit by the federal government regulating the waterway.
