Abstract : The third periodic inspection of Beltzville Dam was held on 14 and 15 September. Installation of two additional weirs and a study of seepage was requested. During the fourth periodic inspection on 23-24 August 1973, it was reported that weir records showed no increase in base flows, thus indicating a stabilized seepage flow which is of minimal volume. Instrumentation installed appeared to be adequately monitoring dam performance. The overall condition of the project was considered excellent. (Author)
