Abstract: Friant Dam, Millerton Reservoir, provides the principal water supply for the Friant Division Central Valley Project of the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation (Bureau). The dam is a 319-foot high straight, concrete gravity structure with a crest length of 3,488 feet. The reservoir surface fluctuates between a maximum storage of 520,500 acre-feet and a minimum storage of 130,000 acre-feet. This paper discusses the various project power plants, the project schedule, and other aspects of the subject.
