Lakewood Dams embankment consists of three earthfill sections that have a total crest length of 295 feet excluding spillways. The right embankment section, which comprises the major portion of the dam, is 6 ffet high, 155 feet long, and has a crest width of eight feet. The upstream slope is 4.4H1V and the downstream slope is 1H1V. The central embankment section is 45 feet long and lies between the principal and emergency spillways. It has a maximum height of 16.4 feet and crest width of about six feet. The left embankment section is an earthfill dike constructed on the left abutment. The dike is 95 feet long, has a crest width of 8 feet and a maximum height of 16.4 feet. The general condition of Lakewood Dam is considered to be poor. This assessment is based primarily on visual observations of badly deteriorated spillway structures and an inadequate spillway capacity.
