Olivenhain Dam Construction Site

Written by Rick Tavares, Ph.D. on .

Here's a photo from the archives of the Olivenhain Dam inundation area circa 1998 prior to construction of the dam. ISE took this photo during some early field reconnaissance of the site to quantify some of the site constraints. This area is now currently under approximately 200-feet of water.

The blasting vibration data obtained from this site was instrumental in developing a new seismic surface wave prediction model - the R-Wave model.
