san marcos dam inundation map
San Luis Obispo County
About this Project
North Coast Engineering completed the inundation map for the Department of Water Resources. The Department of Water Resources requires dam owners to perform a dam breach study every ten years to create an emergency response in case of failure. Our team modeled the breach of a 40-foot tall dam and the impacted area downstream from the dam. The simulation includes 407 acre-feet of water traveling over 10 miles through the San Marcos creek in just under two hours. NCE was able to map the inundated area in color pdfs for safety officials to prepare an emergency action plan (EAP) in response to a dam failure.
