Phoenix Lake Dam and Spillway Improvements

Phoenix Dam Spillway

Tuolumne Utilities District announced the completion of The Phoenix Lake Dam and Spillway Improvement Project in May of 2022.  The Phoenix Lake Spillway and Dam Rehabilitation Project addressed years of deferred maintenance that was being required by the Division of Safety of Dams. This project entailed striping and replacing the existing shotcrete surface to address the propagation cracking taking place on the spillway crest. Additionally, vegetation was removed on the dam face and slopes were stabilized.  The District hired a local contractor, Sierra Mountain Construction, Inc. (SMCI), to complete the rehabilitation of the spillway at the west end of the lake and resurface the spillway structure. The Phoenix Dam was also given a new overlay of shotcrete to protect it from future erosion.
