Current Dam Projects

Current Dam information:

  • FP-B1 Baldwin Gulch Dam: Design underway examining a much more cost-effective solution that involves less disruptive construction efforts, lower risk, lower O&M complexity, and reclassifies the existing structure as non-jurisdictional.  Previous design and analysis efforts returned results that were undesirable to the community and the County but did provide substantial data for even more refined solutions.
  • FP-S1 Stroh Dam: A new spillway will be constructed more in line with the natural channel at a lower elevation to reduce the hazard and reclassify as non-jurisdictional.  Work will commence in mid to late 2020.
  • WCC 7: A new spillway will be constructed closer to the natural channel at a lower elevation to reduce the hazard and reclassify as non-jurisdictional.  Work will commence in late 2020 or 2021.
  • All dams will continue to see standard operations and maintenance as they have previously; pursuant all applicable State Engineer’s Office regulations.  If you have a county dam on your property, you are encouraged to contact DC at your convenience:
