Abstract:

The inspection and review of data for Lake Renee Dam did not reveal any problems which require emergency action. However, a low area beyond the right abutment which provides additional discharge capacity, should be provided with erosion protection. The dam otherwise appears to be in fair condition. Lake Renee Dam is a high hazard-small size dam. The spillway design flood SDF for a dam of this size and classification is 12 PMF to the PMF. The PMF has been selected as the SDF based on the downstream potential for loss of life. The spillway and reservoir are capable of controlling 42 of the PMF, however additional discharge capacity exists beyond the right abutment and is capable of passing an additional 58 of the PMF. Survey stakes in this area noted during the July 30th inspection indicated a possibility of fill material being placed, therefore, possibility reducing the flow through this area in the future. Therefore, the dam is capable of passing the entire SDF. Based on criteria established by the Corps of Engineers, the spillway is termed as adequate.
