Abstract:

Parker Dam is classified as a Significant hazard - Small size dam. The dam and reservoir, owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Environmental Resources, are used for recreational purposes. The dam and appurtenant structures were found to be in good overall condition at the time of the inspection. A spillway design flood SDF in the range of the 100-year flood to the 12 Probable Maximum Flood 12 PMF is required for Parker Dam. Since the dam is in the middle of the Small size category according to storage capacity, the 12 PMF was selected as the SDF. Hydrologichydraulic evaluations, performed in accordance with procedures established by the Baltimore District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, revealed that the available spillway capacity is much greater than the maximum flow expected during the SDF. Therefore, the dam will not be overtopped during the SDF and the spillways are considered to be adequate.
