Exploring More Water Storage – Anderson Ranch Dam


[music] [no spoken words] Reclamation drillers Rick Knott and Kyler
Wallin bore 30-100 feet into the dam’s embankment and
foundation. From core samples, Geologist Mike Procsal
determines soil and rock materials strength. Using this data, engineers will calculate
a proposed 6-foot-high raise of Anderson Ranch Dam. If the project is feasible, the dam’s capacity
will be enlarged by 7 percent. The proposed dam raise will expand water storage
and flood control benefits in the Boise River basin [Music]
