AWREC ARWEC - American River Water Education Center - ARWEC's goal is to increase the publics' understanding of the American River watershed, the water cycle, water conservation, and Folsom Dams multiple roles in providing power, flood control, and recreation, and water for irrigation, municipal and industrial use, fish and wildlife, and other purposes. The center focuses on teaching children about these important issues in interesting ways such as through interactive sessions at the sand table, informative exhibits, water-related videos, a video tour of Folsom Dam, and water-related hands-on activities. The American River Parkway Bike Trail is adjacent to the ARWEC grounds, and visitors may walk on the bike trail to an overlook area to see Folsom Dam.

Auburn State Recreation Area Auburn State Recreation Area - In the heart of the gold country, the Auburn State Recreation Area (Auburn SRA) covers 40-miles of the North and Middle Forks of the American river. Once teeming with thousands of gold miners, the area is now a natural area offering a wide variety of recreation opportunities to over 500,000 visitors a year.
CVP American River Division Auburn-Folsom South Unit The American River Division consists of the Folsom, Sly Park, and Auburn-Folsom South Units. The division is about midway between the northern and southern extremes of the Central Valley in Sacramento, San Joaquin, Placer, and El Dorado Counties. Division lands stretch from Sugar Pine Dam in the north to Stockton in the south. Most lands served by the Division lie in the southern portion of the Division, between Sacramento and Stockton. The Auburn-Folsom South Unit of the Central Valley Project was designed to provide a new and supplemental water supply for irrigation and municipal and industrial needs and to alleviate the badly depleted groundwater conditions in the Folsom South service area. The primary feature of the unit was to be the Auburn Dam, Powerplant, and Reservoir, located on the American River, near the town of Auburn, about 40 miles northeast of Sacramento.
CVP American River Division Folsom and Sly Park Units Originally authorized in 1944 as a 355,000 acre-feet flood control unit, Folsom Dam was reauthorized in 1949 as a 1,000,000 acre-feet multiple-purpose facility. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed Folsom Dam and transferred it to Reclamation for coordinated operation as an integral part of the Central Valley Project. Construction of the dam began in October 1948 and was completed in May 1956. Water was first stored in February 1955.
