Edgewater Village Dam, constructed in 1971, is a zoned earth fill embankment with an impervious core. The embankment is approximately 29.5 high at its maximum section and is approximately 800 feet long. The dam was constructed at the same location as an earlier dam which impounded the unnamed tributary of Otter Point Creek. The flood discharge facilities for the dam consist of an overflow structure and a manually operated sluice gate located in the intake chamber of the overflow structure. Based on the visual inspection, available records, past operational performance, and in accordance with the guideline criteria established for these studies, Edgewater Village Dam is judged to be in fair condition. According to the hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, the Edgewater Village Dam will pass 100 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood without overtopping and its spillway is rated adequate.
