Abstract:

Based on the evaluation of existing conditions, the condition of Minkler Lake Dam is considered to be poor. This dam appears to be essentially abandoned and is not being maintained. Upstream and downstream faces are covered with thick brush and trees. The upstream face of the dam lacks erosion protection and significant shoreline erosion exists at various sections along the upstream face. Operating equipment for the low level outlet pipe has collapsed and is not functional. Concrete in the spillway wing walls have deteriorated, requiring repairs.
