Abstract:

The purpose of this inspection is to determine if the dam constitutes a hazard to human life and property. The Dams location is Bucks Township, Luzerne County. The overall appearance and general condition of the dam and appurtenances are fair. The spillway crest has been raised and the dam crest is two feet below design elevation. These and other noteworthy deficiencies noted. The reservoir pool was 3.5 feet below spillway crest corewall on the day of the initial inspection, 22 October 1980. The lake was purposely drawn down so that maintenance of the dam could be performed. On the date of the review inspection, the reservoir level was one foot above the spillway crest corewall.
