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 the visual inspections of the Lock 24 dam did not reveal conditions which constitute an immediate hazard to human life or property. However, the dam has some deficiencies which require further investigation and remedial action. The spillway cannot pass the peak outflow from one-half the PMF. For this storm and lesser storm events, a high tailwater condition resulting in flooding of downstream areas would occur. Therefore, overtopping would not significantly increase the hazard to loss of life downstream from that which would exist just before such overtopping and the spillway is assessed as inadequate.
