Abstract:

The purpose of this inspection is to determine if the dam constitutes a hazard to human life and property. The dams location is Tremont Township, Schuylkill County U.S.G.S. Quadrangle - Pine Grove, Pa. The general appearance of the Black Creek Intake Dam is good, except that a heavy growth of trees covers the downstream slope of the embankment Photograph No. 2. The slopes appear to be stable. A considerable amount of water was flowing through rocks just beyond the downstream toe near the spillway. This water appears to originate from the spillway channel. The overall visual evaluation of these facilities indicates that the dam is in good condition. The trees on the embankment should be removed. The observed steady seepage beyond the toe of the embankment adjacent to the spillway outlet channel has been a long standing condition 40 or - years and is not considered to be a serious problem at this time.
