Abstract : Potake Lake Dam is 1 mile southwest of Sloatsburg, New York. The dam and reservoir are used as a water supply source for Sloatsburg, New York. Visual inspection revealed several deficiencies in this structure. The following items were noted: There are three depressions and an animal burrow on the crest of the dam; Trees and brush are growing on the upstream and downstream face of the dam; The spillway discharge channel has trees, boulders, and natural ground which restricts flow over the spillway weir; A 3-foot diameter culvert in the discharge channel has the downstream end higher than the upstream end; There are tire ruts 0.4 foot deep on the crest of the dam; and There is a small amount of spalling and deterioration of the low section of the concrete weir.
