Abstract:

The visual inspection and review of available design and construction information indicate that Bronson Pond Dam is in fair condition. The primary deficiency noted during the inspection was the lack of any spillway or outlet facilities for the dam. Based on the size and hazard classification of the dam, the recommended Spillway Design Flood SDF varies between the 100-year flood and one-half the Probable Maximum Flood PMF. Based on the size of the dam and reservoir, and the downstream conditions, the 100-year flood has been selected as the SDF. The hydrologic and hydraulic computations indicate that the combinations of reservoir storage and overflow discharge capacity pass the 100-year flood without overtopping the dam. For this reason, the overflow capacity for Bronson Pond Dam is considered to be inadequate.
