Abstract:

Lake Carey Dam is an earthfill embankment with a vertical, mortarless, stone masonry downstream face. The dam extends 110 feet across the valley and is 13 feet high. A concrete and stone masonry spillway chute, with a crest length of 19.3 feet, is situated on the embankment near the right abutment. The spillway crest is 3.7 feet below the top of the dam. An auxiliary spillway channel, with irregular cross section and with a crest about 0.7 foot below the top of the dam, is located at the right abutment. Before the dam was constructued, Lake Carey was a natural lake. The dam is located on Mill Brook approximately 3.2 miles northeast of Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania.
