Abstract:

The dam is located across Mill Creek, approximately three miles upstream from its confluence with the Tuscarora Creek in Tuscarora Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. The dam is classified to be in the significant hazard category. It is estimated that failure of the dam may cause loss of a few lives and some property damage in these areas. The onsite inspection of Mill Creek Dam consisted of Visual inspection of the embankment, abutments, and embankment toe, Visual examination of the spillway and the visible portions of the outlet works, and Evaluation of downstream area hazard potential.
