Mooney Ridge infrequent inundation
Raising Folsom Dam will result in inundation of the lower portion of 16 lots in the Mooney Ridge subdivision when the reservoir is at maximum flood capacity. The inundation won’t affect any homes, would be very infrequent and short in duration, and we have yet to experience a storm event that would cause this inundation. The Corps would most likely acquire perpetual, intermittent flowage easements on this land. In addition to the easements, engineers will ensure that residences are properly protected from high water.
