4 huge dam projects that could become California realities

August 28, 2015           

Four large dam projects are under consideration in California, selected by state and federal officials in 2000 out of 50 potential sites. Proposition 1, a water bond approved by voters last fall, allocates 40 percent of its funds, $2.7 billion, to storage. It could pay up to half the cost of new projects.
