Abstract:

Bradys Run Dam consists of an earth embankment approximately 350 feet long with a maximum height of 33 feet from the downstream toe and a crest width of 12 feet. The flood discharge facilities for the dam consist of a combined primary and emergency spillway located near the left abutment looking downstream. The spillway structures of the dam consist of a concrete overflow section, and a rectangular concrete spillway chute which terminates in a concrete-lined plunge pool at the toe level of the dam near the left abutment. The overflow structure of the spillway is a 135-foot-long ogee weir located at an elevation approximately 10 feet below the dam crest. The outlet works consist of a reinforced concrete box culvert and a control tower located near the right abutment. Flow through the outlet conduit is controlled by a manually operated sluice gate located at the control tower. The outlet conduit constitutes the emergency drawdown facilities for the reservoir. The dam is located on the South Branch of Bradys Run approximately one mile upstream from its confluence with the North Branch in Brighton Township, Beaver County, Pennsylvannia.
