Maple Lake Dam is a homogeneous, earthfill embankment. It is 35 feet high at its maximum section and 685 feet long. The main spillway is located at the maximum section of the dam. It consists of a reinforced concrete riser structure near the upstream toe of the dam, a 24-inch diameter conduit, and a concrete outlet structure at the downstream toe of the dam. The auxiliary spillway is an excavated, trapezoidal channel at the left abutment of the dam. Based on visual inspection, available records, calculations, past operational performance, and according to criteria established for these studies, Maple Lake Dam is judged to be in good condition. Based on existing conditions, the main and auxiliary spillways will pass an approximate minimum of 48 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood PMF before overtopping of the dam occurs. No stability problems were evident for the embankment at the time of the visual inspection, but a potential hazard to stability exists due to erosion that might occur when there is flow in the auxiliary spillway.
