Abstract:

The Lake Kimberly Dam Location is Southwest Madison Township, Perry County U.S.G.S. Quadrangle - Andersonburg, Pa. The overall evaluation of the facilities indicates that Lake Kimberly Dam is in poor condition. The growth of trees, brush and weeds should be removed, and the upstream slope should be protected from wave action. The crest profile is irregular and should be brought to a uniform elevation higher than the emergency spillway elevation in order to prevent overtopping. The downstream slope should be repaired where the slough has occurred and where the outlet pipe has eroded the embankment. The outlet pipe should be extended beyond the downstream toe of the embankment, and a rock protected plunge pool should be constructed at the end of the outlet pipe.
