Removing Matilija Dam:
About the Matilija Coalition:
The Matilija Dam Project includes modification or construction of three levees downstream of the dam site. These are located at Meiners Oaks, Live Oak (Oak View) and Casitas Springs.
Meiners Oaks Levee
show the historical river channel migration since 1947 and location of tributary
inflows. The alignment of proposed
levee is shown in the figure on the left. Green lines represent existing flood control channels.
These figures show the existing 100-year flooding threat, worst-case flooding with dam removal, and intended flood mitigation with proposed levee (which is shown for reference on each image.) Inflow from upland tributaries was not included in this analysis.
