The dam is a reinforced concrete slab and buttress structure with a height of 23 feet and a crest length of 324 feet.



Lost River Diversion Dam and Wilson Dam/Reservoir

A Canal Fish Screen

Work included the design and construction of a cofferdam that isolated the work area from Klamath Lake, design and construction of temporary dewatering system connected to permanent power with a diesel powered backup system, demolition of the existing headgate structure and excavation of 50,000 cy. It also included placement of 6,000 cy of structural concrete in three months, the installation, startup, and testing of trash racks and a bracket green trash rake. This job also included the supply and installation of bulkheads and embeds, structural steel and grating for “V” screen, primary and secondary fish screen panels and baffles, primary and secondary screen cleaners, and large electrically actuated gates, including a custom ramp gate. The construction of the pumping plant included two 20” fish pumps, supply and installation of 2,000 LF of fish pipe, construction of a fish evaluation facility, and installation of a power distribution system including a diesel standby generator. This project was completed on-time by the spring deadline to provide irrigation to more than 200,000 acres of farmland.

Malone Diversion Dam

Klamath Straits Drain

Work on increasing this drain`s capacity from 300 to 600 cubic feet per second was completed in 1981. The drain conveys drainage water from Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge and from irrigated land which has been reclaimed from Lower Klamath Lake. The drain extends from the State Line Road approximately 20 miles north-westerly to Klamath River. The drain removes the excess winter flows and the drainage from the lower closed basin to the Klamath River.

Miller Diverson Dam

Tule Lake Tunnel

Tule Lake Tunnel, a concrete-lined structure 6,600 feet in length with a capacity of 250 cubic feet per second, conveys drainage water from Tule Lake restricted sumps to Lower Klamath Lake.

`A` Canal Tunnel

This 3,300-foot tunnel, a part of the `A` Canal, has a capacity of 1,150 cubic feet per second and conveys irrigation water from Upper Klamath Lake to serve approximately 63,000 acres.
