CE&G is providing geotechnical services related to the planned seismic retrofit of two earth dams owned by the Santa Clara Valley Water District. As a project subconsultant, CE&G has been assisting with the development and preparation of planning study documents including a Problem Definition Report, Planning Study Report, and CEQA. Services include document review and data collection, completion of a geotechnical foundation exploration for potential seismic retrofit alternatives for each dam, evaluation of alternatives for the retrofits, and a borrow and spoil siting study. The dams which were each built in 1936, were previously found to be unstable under current seismic evaluation criteria. The retrofits are being designed and will be constructed under the auspices of the California Division of Safety of Dams.
