Abstract:

Greenwood Dam is an earthfill embankment, originally constructed in 1880. The embankment height was increased in 1901 or 1904 and again in 1935 to its present configuration. The length of the embankment is about 850 feet with a maximum height of 32 feet. Four 20-inch pipes are placed under the embankment with valves at the downstream end without control at the upstream end. The pipes are supported on a masonry wall. The outlets of these pipes are not visible because they are submerged under the backwater of the Lake Hauto Dam, which is located immediately downstream. The spillway is located in the left abutment, about 100 feet from the end of the dam. The spillway is a concrete ogee weir and the discharge channel is cut out of the rock. The length of the ogee section is 94.5 feet and the weir crest is 2.0 feet above the approach channel. The left side of the spillway is sloped and cement paved. The right side is a vertical wall of stone, laid in mortar.
