LAKE ISABELLA, Calif. (Oct. 21, 2009) - The Borel Canal (center) runs toward the auxiliary dam at Lake Isabella, which sits atop the Kern Canyon Fault. Geologists and engineers are studying seismic activity at various locations near Lake Isabella by digging trenches and drilling bore holes close to the dam, operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District. Study results will be used as part of the Isabella Dam Safety Assurance Program.
