Sugar Pine Dam

Sugar Pine Dam

Sugar Pine Dam is an earth fill embankment dam located 7 miles (11 kilometres) north of Foresthill in Placer County, California. It impounds North Shirttail Creek, a tributary of the North Fork American River, and serves as the Foresthill community's primary municipal water supply.

The Sugar Pine Dam Project involved monitoring of a zoned earthfill dam that consists of a central clay core and rockfill shell. The project required piezometers to collect some long–term monitoring data.

Rite Geosystems Inc., USA was entrusted to provide the instrumentation and real time monitoring results for the project.
