Abstract:

The dams location is Wright Township, Luzerne County, U.S.G.S. Quadrangle - Wilkes-Barre West, Pa. The overall appearance and general condition of the dam and appurtenances are fair. Based on visual observations, it is apparent that no maintenance of the dam has been performed for some time. The trees and brush should be removed from the embankment. The spillway crest, discharge channel and walls should be repaired. The spillway bridge and pier should also be rehabilitated or removed since the structure could block the spillway if it collapses. The embankment and spillway appear stable since no signs of movement were noted and the core wall and downstream slope are adequate.
