Constructed in 2005, Creekside Reservoir No. 1 is a 95-foot-high zoned, fullylined earthfill dam located near Canyonville, Oregon, on land owned by the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe of Indians. The high-hazard dam stores 371-acre-feet of raw water.
Following the creation of the Emergency Action Plan, the client was able to fulfill the State of Oregon’s permitting requirement. In addition, the Tribe now has plans in place to respond to emergency situations that threaten the dam and surrounding tribal and public lands.
