Caption

An angler tries his luck by fly fishing at the confluence of the North and Middle Forks of the American River, 34 miles upstream from Sacramento, California. To the angler's left is the Highway 49 Bridge. To the angler's right the New Foresthill Bridge towers 730 feet above over the Old Foresthill Bridge.

This location is significant because of the crucial importance of water to the state of California. The New Foresthill Bridge was built to span the Auburn Dam Reservoir which was to have been completed in 1983. It purpose was to provide flood protection for the city of Sacramento, water for cities and farms, power for the state's energy grid and recreation for pleasure boaters. The Auburn Dam would have been the largest concrete dam in the world, but its construction was postponed indefinitely because of seismic safety concerns.

The debate over the dam continues to this day. For more information please follow this link... http://www.faultline.org/place/2002/10/auburn1.html
