Abstract:

Stovers Dam is a 160 or - year old earthfill embankment with a masonry spillway at its left end. The length of the embankment is approximately 250 feet and the maximum height is 25 feet. The 18 foot wide broadcrested spillway was originally three feet below the top of the dam, but has been raised a few inches. A gate structure, located on the upstream side, has been sealed off and the control on the 12-inch blowoff pipe is located in a valve pit near the downstream toe. This pipe is the only known pipe in the embankment and has no upstream closure control. Location City of Lebanon and North Lebanon Township, Lebanon County, U.S. Quadrangle, Lebanon, PA.
