The Bureau of Reclamation built the Boca Dam in Nevada County CA in the late 1930s. It is an earth fill dam and part of the Truckee Storage Project, and it is located one mile north of the confluence of the Little Truckee River and the Truckee River.
Also pictured is the original bridge crossing the Truckee River. All men and materials had to pass over this bridge for work on the dam.
The Boca dam is on the National Register of Historic Places.
