Abstract:

This report provides information and analysis on the physical condition of the dam as of the report date. Information and analysis are based on visual inspection of the dam by the performing organization. Examination of available documents and a visual inspection of the dam did not reveal conditions which constitute an immediate hazard to human life or property. However, additional investigations are necessary to further evaluate conditions affecting the dam and increased maintenance efforts especially on the Outer Forebay wall, should be undertaken. Additional detailed structural stability analyses of the dam and appurtenant structures, using the site specific characteristics of the underlying bedrock foundation and the physical condition of the dams concrete, should be completed within six 6 months of the date of notification of the owner. Based upon the results of the detailed investigations, appropriate remedial measures deemed necessary to insure the safety and integrity of the dam and appurtenant structures should be undertaken and completed within eighteen 18 months of the date of notification of the owner.
