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.
