Abstract:

Cabin Creek Dam is an earth-fill dam with a concrete core wall. The embankment is 207 feet long and 23.2 feet high at the maximum section. The upstream slope is 2.25H1V and covered with riprap. The downstream slope is 2H1V and grass covered with large trees growing near the toe. The 18 inch wide core wall extends 2 feet into rock and projects 5 feet above rock. The foundation was grouted during construction. The spillway is located on the left abutment. The spillway consists of a 30 feet long concrete weir with a hydraulically operated Bascule crest gate. The spillway exit channel is cut into rock with a dry rubble, earth and rock dike keeping flow in a confined channel. The intake tower is located near the maximum section about 40 feet from the crest. A bridge serves as access from the embankment crest to the intake tower. A 12 inch cast iron pipe serves as the emergency blow off line and water intake line. The intake tower has two intakes at different elevations. Author
