Abstract : The dam is a dry rubble masonry dam with a concrete facing. It is about 78 ft. long with a maximum height to 34 ft. The overall condition of the dam is considered to be fair. At the time of the inspection the penstock opening has been sealed and the intake gate removed. It is intermediate in size with a significant hazard potential. The test flood would overtop the dam by 2.8 ft. There are various maintenance and operating measures which should be implemented.
