  • Alamo Dam Water Control Plan

    Alamo Dam’s current 2003 Water Control Manual contains a Water Control Plan and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Biological Opinion (BIOP) developed in 1999. The Water Control Manual is the Corps guiding document on how the project holds and releases water from Alamo Reservoir to meet its congressionally authorized purposes. To fix or clarify certain issues as well as address changed circumstances the Corps intends to re-evaluate existing operations at Alamo Dam to determine if changes to the Water Control Plan – and thus changes to how Alamo Dam is operated - are warranted.
