Ralston Switchyard Erosion Protection Project
FERC No. 2079
The Ralston Powerhouse 230 kV electrical switchyard was damaged during recent major storm events. Various levels of erosion have occurred at the switchyard. In January 1997, most of the riprap slope protection and portions of the embankment were removed by severe flooding. The erosion resulted in undermining the electrical switchyard. Interim repairs have been made to stabilize the embankment. However, the restored erosion protection is not considered adequate to prevent switchyard damage from a storm similar to that of January 1997. PCWA is proposing to construct long-term flood control protection measures.

Slate Creek Diversion Dam Sediment Pass-Through Plan Oroville-Wyandotte Irrigation District South Fork Project
FERC No. 2088
The Oroville-Wyandotte Irrigation District (OWID) is proposing a Sediment Pass-Through plan for the Slate Creek Diversion Dam. The Slate Creek Diversion Dam was built in 1962 and is part of OWID's South Fork Hydroelectric project. The reservoir behind the dam has become filled with sediments, due in part to mining activities upstream from the dam. The sediments behind the Slate Creek Diversion Dam pose a hazard to the functioning of the diversion tunnel and low level water release valves. Sediments have been removed by dredging in the past, however the reservoir has quickly refilled. OWID is seeking a long term solution for maintaining the functioning of the Slate Creek Diversion Dam.
