Laurel Dam is a concrete gravity dam constructed in 1967. The dam is 25 feet high 32 feet above bedrock. The center overflow section consists of an ogee weir and is 200 feet long. The right abutment is a gravity non-overflow section. The left abutment consists of a 151 foot long non overflow concrete wingwall. This wingwall is 12.5 feet higher than the ogee crest. The drawdown conduit is a 3 feet by 5 feet concrete tunnel through the left abutment wingwall. The conduit is 29.5 feet long and is controlled by a sluice gate operated from the top of the wingwall.
