Abstract:

Based on the criteria in the guidelines, the dam is in the high hazard potential classification, which means that loss of life and appreciable property loss could occur in the event of failure of the dam. Within the estimated five mile damage zone downstream of the dam are seven houses, six buildings, and one road crossing which may be subjected to flooding, with possible damage andor destruction, and possible loss of life. B K Lake No. 1 Dam is in the small size classification since it is less than 40 feet high and impounds less than 1,000 acre-feet of water. B K Lake No. 1 Dam being a small size dam with a high hazard potential, is required by the guidelines to pass from one-half of the Probable Maximum Flood to the Probable Maximum Flood without overtopping. Since there is high hazard potential downstream of the dam, the appropriate spillway design flood for this dam is the Probable Maximum Flood. It was determined that the reservoirspillway system can accommodate 17 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood without overtopping the dam. Our evaluation also indicates that the reservoirspillway system can accommodate the 100-year flood without overtopping the dam.
