Based on a visual inspection, operational history, and available engineering data, the dam is considered to be in fair condition. The size classification of the facility is small and the hazard classification is considered to be high. In accordance with the recommended guidelines, the Spillway Design Flood SDF ranges between the 12 PMF Probable Maximum Flood and the PMF. Due to the high potential for damage to downstream structures and possible loss of life, the SDF is considered to be the PMF. Results of the hydrologic and hydraulic analysis indicate the facility will pass andor store approximately 50 percent of the PMF prior to embankment overtopping at the low area in the embankment crest. Consequently, the spillway is assessed as being inadequate, but not seriously inadequate. Recommended owner procedures are listed.
