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. The examination of documents and visual inspection of the dam and appurtenant structures did not reveal conditions which constitute an immediate hazard to human life or property. The dam, however, has a number of problem areas which require further surveillance and remedial work. The following is a list of recommended measures to be undertaken to insure safety of the facility. These measures should be completed within two years. 1 The existing sluice gate structure has suffered structural damage so as to render the gates inoperable. Repairs should be undertaken to place the sluice gate structure in proper operating condition. 2 Repairs should be undertaken on the deteriorated concrete surfaces of the abutments and spillway. 3 A flood warning and emergency evacuation system should be implemented to alert the public in the event conditions occur which could result in failure of the dam. 4 A formalized inspection system should be initiated to develop data on conditions and maintenance operations at the facility.
