Proposed Water Supply Reservoir on Mill Creek, San Bernardino County CA – A Senior Water Resources Capstone Project
The project involves sizing of an earthen or concrete dam and reservoir on Mill Creek, and water conveyance system for the communities of Yucaipa and Beaumont. The work involves determination of the maximum yield of the reservoir and the probable maximum flood for the design of the spillway. Additionally three different types of routes will be investigated for the transmission conduit. Preliminary design documents will include a site plan, a section of the dam, the spillway cross-section, the most economical pipeline choice as well as pipeline alternative routings.
