Abstract:

Harris Pond Dam is a combination earth, concrete and masonry structure approximately 10 feet high and 135 feet long, including spillway. It is located on Roaring Brook Creek in Ross Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. The overall appearance of the facility suggests it to be in good condition. The only deficiency noted by the inspection team that requires immediate remedial attention was the areas exhibiting concrete deterioration. Flashboards reportedly removed during significant storms were observed in-place across the service spillway. Although generally considered undesirable, they appear, in this particular case, to be of little significance relative to the safe operation of Harris Pond Dam.
