Abstract:

This dam was inspected on 19 and 28 November 1979 by Storch Engineers under contract to the State of New Jersey. The State, under agreement with the U.S. Army Engineer District, Philadelphia, has this inspection performed in accordance with the National Dam Inspection Act, Public Law 92-367. Clinton Mills Dam, initially listed as a high hazard potential structure, but reduced to a significant hazard potential structure as a result of this inspection, is judged to be in fair overall condition. The dams spillway is considered inadequate because a flow equivalent to five percent of the Spillway Design Flood - SDF- would cause the dam to be overtopped. The SDF, in this instance, is one half of the Probable Maximum Flood.
