America’s dams and other water infrastructure are aging, and in California are increasingly vulnerable to a more extreme range of hydrologic conditions and to seismic risk.
Lake Oroville’s spillway deterioration before our eyes led to a much-enhanced dam safety program in the state. United Water Conservation District turned to Catalyst to conduct an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to support safety-related improvements to its dam. The project was completed successfully, and the early satisfaction of this major environmental requirement led to much improved rankings in grant requests. Many such funding authorities are looking for “shovel-ready” projects, and the Catalyst environmental review provided that assurance.
