Abstract:

Salt Run Reservoir Dam consists of a diaphragm earthfill embankment approximately 42 feet high and 355 feet long. The uncontrolled overflow spillway is located at the right abutment of the dam and is 65 feet wide. The dam and reservoir are owned and operated by the Emporium Water Company. The visual inspection and review of engineering data, performed in November 1978 through January 1979, revealed necessary items of maintenance and rehabilitation for the dam. It is recommended that the owner repair the undermining of the right end of the spillway, monitor all seepage from the dam for quantity and turbidity, monitor and provide erosion protection at the left abutment hillside seepage, provide drainage for the marshy area downstream from the dam, repair the animal burrows in the embankment, implement a rodent control program, repair all eroded areas on the embankment and reseed as necessary, repair the spalled concrete on the intake structure, and develop and implement a maintenance schedule for all facilities.
