Abstract:

Based on available records, visual inspection, calculations, and past operational performance, Lake Paupackan Dam is judged to be in fair condition. Considering the size and hazard classification of the dam, the recommended Spillway Design Flood SDF varies between the 12 Probable Maximum Flood PMF and the PMF. The 12 PMF was, in this case, selected as the SDF. The spillway and reservoir, under existing conditions, will pass approximately 19 percent of the PMF before overtopping of the dam occurs. The spillway is, therefore, rated as inadequate.
