The proposed project, a joint venture between Reclamation, the Navajo Nation, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, is being carried out to correct safety deficiencies associated with Asaayi Dam and spillway. Proposed corrective measures include increasing the spillway capacity, modifying the outlets works, repairing the toe drain system, and increasing the crest height of the dam. Project construction will necessitate draining the reservoir and diverting inflows from Bowl Creek. Temporary closure of recreation areas near the dam is anticipated during construction.
The construction will be phased over a two-year period beginning in 2007. Improvements will include a new spillway, revamped outlet works, and improved vehicle access to the dam.
