The information gleaned from the core samples and instrumentation will be used by Reclamation for consideration of short and long-term performance of the dam related to dam safety and security measures. Studies like these are an ongoing effort by Reclamation to protect the public investment in water and hydropower projects. To varying degrees these, and similar tests, occur on all Reclamation dams throughout the West.
Taylor Park Dam is located on the Taylor River, a tributary of the Gunnison River, approximately 30 miles northeast of Gunnison, Colo.
