Abstract:

The purpose of this visual inspection was to make an assessment of the general condition of the dam with respect to safety and, based upon available data and this inspection, determine if the dam poses a hazard to human life or property. The Kearney Lake Dam, according to the St. Louis District, Corps of Engineers, has a high hazard potential, meaning that if the dam should fail, there may be loss of life, serious damage to homes, or extensive damage to agricultural, industrial or commercial facilities, important public utilities, main highways, or railroads. The estimated flood damage zone, should failure of the dam occur, as determined by the St. Louis District, extends two miles downstream of the dam. Within the possible damage zone are two dwellings, a warehouse, and several other types of buildings. Those features lying within the downstream damage zone reported by the Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District, were verified by the inspection team.
