Abstract:

The Vly Creek Dam is composed of a 24.5 feet high and 338 feet long earth embankment dam with spillway, and a 39.5 feet high and 1720 feet long earth embankment dike with control tower for water supply regulation. Visual inspection did not reveal conditions that are considered to be unsafe. The total discharge capacity of the spillway is adequate to pass half the Probable Maximum Flood PMF regardless of the flashboards. The spillway is also capable of discharging PMF without flashboards, but not with flashboards.
