TOPIC: East Bay Municipal Utility District’s Dam Breach Inundation Mapping Project


Following the events that unfolded at Oroville Dam in 2017, the State of California passed Senate Bill 92 requiring owners of all State jurisdictional dams, except low hazard dams, prepare inundation maps and Emergency Action Plans for dams and critical appurtenant structures, such as spillways. East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) initiated the Dam Breach Inundation Mapping Project to update inundation maps for its 17 regulated dams in the East Bay that the Department of Water Resources (DWR) – Division of Safety of Dams (DSOD) classified as extremely high hazard dams due to their proximity to downstream populated areas. The inundation maps presently in use for the dams were last prepared by the District in the 1970s, and given the recent advances in computers, data, and modeling software, were in need of updating. To this end, HEC-RAS was used to develop the dam breach and two-dimensional flood routing models with results of these analyses used to develop the new inundation maps. Highlighted in this presentation is a brief overview of the District’s system in the East Bay and dam breach modeling performed for the Project.
