Abstract:

Based on the visual inspection. past performance and the available engineering data, the dam and its appurtenant structures appear to be in fair condition. In accordance with the Corps of Engineers evaluation guidelines, the size classification of this dam is small and the hazard classification is significant. These classifications indicate that the Spillway Design Flood SDF should be in the range of the 100 year flood to one-half of the Probable Maximum Flood PMF. The recommended SDF for this structure is the 100 year flood. The spillway capacity is sufficient for passing the SDF peak inflow without overtopping the dam. The spillway, therefore, is considered to be adequate. The following recommendations are presented for immediate action by the owner.
