Abstract:

Based on a review of available design information and visual observations of conditions as they existed on the date of the field inspection, the general condition of the Glade Run Dam is considered to be good. This assessment is based primarily on visual observations of the embankment and appurtenant structures. Glade Run Dam is an intermediate size, high hazard structure. Corps of Engineers guidelines recommend the Probable Maximum Flood PMF as the Spillway Design Flood for an intermediate size, high hazard dam. Glade Run Dams Spillway Design Flood is the Probable Maximum Flood. Spillway capacity is inadequate because the non-overtopping flood discharge was found, by using the HEC-1 computer program, to be 92 percent of the PMF. The visual inspection indicated several minor deficiencies. The deficiencies can be corrected or improved through implementation of the following recommended remedial andor maintenance efforts.
