Schafer Dam Renaming
Richard L. Schafer speaks at a ceremony marking the renaming of Success Dam to the Richard L. Schafer Dam, Oct. 1, 2019, near Porterville, California. The dam’s name was changed following a congressional resolution authored by Rep. Kevin McCarthy and signed into law by President Donald Trump Aug. 9, 2019. The dam was constructed in 1961 and has prevented an estimated total of $200 million in property damage and reduced flood risk for a population of more than 76,000 people.
