Abstract:

Pages Lake Dam is owned and operated by the Lakeside Outing Club and is classified as a Significant hazard - Intermediate size dam. The dam was found to be in good overall condition on 27 October 1980. Hydraulichydrologic evaluations, performed in accordance with procedures established by the Baltimore District, Corps of Engineers, for Phase I Inspection Reports, revealed that the spillway will not pass the 12 Probable Maximum Flood 12 PMF without overtopping the dam. A spillway design flood SDF in the range of the 12 PMF to the Probable Maximum Flood PMF is required for Pages Lake Dam. The 12 PMF was chosen as the SDF because the dam is on the low end of the Intermediate size category in terms of storage. During the 12 PMF, the dam is overtopped by a maximum depth of 3.34 feet for a total duration of 11.83 hours. The spillway is therefore considered Inadequate. It is recommended that the owner immediately initiate an engineering study to further evaluate the spillway capacity and develop recommendations for remedial measures to reduce the overtopping potential of the dam.
