Aerial View of Folsom Dam Auxiliary Spillway
An aerial view shows the entire construction site of the Folsom Dam auxiliary spillway March 6, 2013. Excavation began in 2011 to remove 3.5 million cubic yards of rock and soil from the site. In 2012, the first steel and concrete were placed for the control structure—essentially a second dam—that will stand as tall as the Statue of Liberty when completed. The completed dam and chute will include 350,000 cubic yards of concrete, enough to line up concrete trucks from Sacramento to Los Angeles, and 24 million tons of steel, enough to build two Eiffel Towers. The project is estimated to be completed by October 2017 and is one piece of a larger plan to help the Sacramento region reduce the risk of flooding to a one-in-200 chance for flooding in any given year.
