Abstract:

The dam is located approximately 2 miles northwest of the Village of Colley, Wilmot Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. The inspection consisted of Visual inspection of the retaining structure, abutments and toe Examination of the spillway facilities, exposed portion of any outlet works and other appurtenant works Observations affecting the runoff potential of the drainage basin and Evaluation of the downstream area hazard potential. The dam appears to be in good condition and adequately maintained. From a brief survey conducted during the inspection, it was noted that the low spot on the crest of the dam exits at the top left edge of the spillway crest. It was observed during the inspection that a new concrete cap had been placed on the structure. The concrete appeared to be in good condition. The dam was constructed with dry rubble masonry with an upstream earthfill. No concrete exists on the downstream face of the structure or on the bench located along the downstream face of the structure. The rubble masonry appeared to be in good condition and well maintained.
