Comments Requested on Folsom Dam Project by Fri Jan 26

Plans are underway to modify Folsom Dam to increase protection against flooding in Sacramento. Sacramento currently has the least protection against flooding of any major city in the US. This upgrade is seen as more cost-effective and less environmentally damaging solution than Auburn Dam or other larger projects.
