Project Details
Title: Sites Reservoir Project
Site: https://www.sitesproject.org/information/DraftEIR-EIS/
Summary: The Project would consist of a new, offstream storage reservoir with a capacity of up to 1.9 million acre-feet. The Sites Reservoir would be approximately 12,000 to 14,000 acres in size. It would be created by inundating the area around the unincorporated community of Sites, California, which is referred to locally as Antelope Valley. Up to 11 dams would be needed to create Sites Reservoir. There would be two main dams: the Golden Gate Dam on Funks Greek, and the Sites Dam on Stone Corral Creek. There would also be up to nine saddle dams on the northern end of the reservoir, between Funks Creek and Hunters Creek watersheds. The project would also include an inlet/outlet structure; a pumping plant, electrical switchyard and overhead powerlines; and a tunnel of approximately 4,030 feet in length, connecting the pumping plant to the reservoir. The Draft EIR/EIS is also available for review and can be found at the Sites Authority Website listed above. If the link above does not work, copy the link into internet explorer.
