Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Addresses Its First Dam

$100 million allocated to B.F. Sisk Dam.

On Thursday, the Department of the Interior announced that project-specific funding would be given to modify the B.F. Sisk Dam in California, which impounds the U.S.’ largest off-stream reservoir. The money will be distributed through the department’s Bureau of Reclamation, and will be the first critical dam safety project funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

“Investing in and enhancing dam safety is central to the Biden-Harris administration’s all-of-government approach to addressing drought and confronting climate change impacts on communities and habitats,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. “This is the first of many projects that will benefit from these historic infrastructure investments.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For administration officials to be wise in the appropriation of infrastructure funds.
  • For discernment for Secretary Haaland as she heads the Interior Department.
  • For the president and his advisors as they deliberate the infrastructure needs of the nation.
