Update to Proposed Expansion of Pacheco Reservoir Includes Changes to Dam Spillway and Increased Costs

As part of a partnership with the San Benito County Water District and Pacheco Pass Water District, the project would increase the reservoir’s capacity from 5,500 to up to 140,000 acre-feet, enough water to supply up to 1.4 million residents for a year.
