San Pablo Dam Seismic Upgrade

This massive seismic project, now complete, reinforces San Pablo Dam

The San Pablo Dam Seismic Upgrade began in 2008 and was completed in September 2010. EBMUD constructed a larger buttress and improved the foundation to seismically strengthen the dam. The reservoir level limits have returned to their pre-2004 status and the dam and reservoir are fully operational. As part of the mitigation plan for San Pablo Dam, EBMUD is creating habitat for California red-legged frogs, restoring existing stream channels, constructing new wetlands, and enhancing habitat for Alameda whipsnakes in the Pavon Creek and Scow Canyon Area.
