The structure is on the San Grabriel River, 31.9 river miles upstream from its confluence with the Little River. Principal structures of the dam are: a) earthfill embankment approximately 15,240 feet long, maximum height of 114 feet, top elevation of 555 feet, and crown of 30 feet; b) gate controlled outlet works; and c) spillway 950 feet wide, with a crest elevation fo 528 feet, located on the right (south) abutment. This final foundation report records, documents and provides solutions to problems with regard to foundation conditions (during the construction phases), problems encountered and methods/solutions to resolve foundation problems during actual construction of Granger Dam and Lake.
