Isabella Dam Modification (Video)

We’re back! Happy New Year! Between the holidays, still being swamped with work, and some family health issues, we’ve had a long end of the year break in our posting . Last year was a crazy year for us and our hope is get to back to posting like we did in 2011! Our first video of the year comes from the Corps of Engineers Sacramento District on the modification plans to Isabella Dam in California.

The dam is located outside of Bakersfield with about 300,000 people living and working below the dam. The flood, seismic, and seepage high risks (and age!) have precipitated the need for something to be done for the dam. The video below outlines those risks and the plans moving forward.
