The Rodgers Crossing Project was a major storage and power project to be situated on the main stem of the Kings River, approximately 21 miles upstream of the existing Pine Flat Dam and Reservoir.
As envisioned, the project would have consisted of a 640-foot high concrete gravity dam creating an additional 737,000 acre-feet of storage capacity with an annual yield of approximately 100,000 acre-feet when fully maximized. The project would have included a hydroelectric power plant containing two 155-megawatt generating units.
Plans for Rodgers Crossing were not far along when the project was suspended in 1986 following Congressional action that placed the foothill reservoir site into a special federal management area.
KRCD is permitted to resume studies of the project when it deems appropriate, but the dam, power plant and reservoir would require authorization by Congress to construct.
