The conditions include the following a slide on the downstream slope a depression on the downstream slope steep downstream slopes over some reaches of the dam concentrated seepage at various locations growth of trees on the dam deterioration of the spillway chute with heavy drain hole discharge and possible undermining of the concrete slabs a crack with differential movement in the left wall of the chute and both deformation of and accumulations of soil in the outlet conduit. Recommendations are provided for remedial measures.
