Abstract:

Licking Creek Dam is an earthfill dam with a concrete corewall. The embankment is 700 feet long and 26 feet high at the maximum section. The 2 foot thick concrete core wall is reported to have been placed on the upstream side of the dam axis well into bedrock some 30 feet below streambed and extends halfway to the top of the dam. Above the concrete wall is an 18 inch thick rubble masonry wall extending to within 4.5 feet of the top of dam. This rubble masonry wall is constructed on the upstream face and also provides protection against wave action. Above the rubble wall is riprap. The dam is located on Licking Creek, approximately 5.5 miles west of Mifflin, Juniata County, Pennsylvania.
