Title: B.F. Sisk Dam Raise and Reservoir Expansion Project
Summary: As a connected action to the B.F. Sisk Safety of Dams (SOD) Modification Project, Reclamation and San Luis and Delta Mendota Water Authority (SLDMWA) seek to evaluate an increase in storage capacity of the San Luis Reservoir. The increased storage capacity would be achieved by an additional 10-foot raise of the B.F. Sisk Dam embankment across the entire dam crest above the level proposed for dam safety purposes (Proposed Action). This additional 10 feet of dam embankment could add approximately 130,000 AF of water storage to San Luis reservoir. SLDMWA, in coordination with Reclamation, is conducting a feasibility study to evaluate the Proposed Action and a potential cost-share in accordance with the Reclamation Safety of Dams Act (43 U.S.C. 506 et seq.), as amended by P.L. 114-113, and the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act (P.L. 114-322) 4007. Further information about the B.F. Sisk Safety of Dams Modification Project is available at https://www.usbr.gov/mp/nepa/nepa_project_details.php?Project_ID=34281
