Abstract:

The Dam is an earthfill structure about 230 feet long and 19 feet high with a private roadway traversing the dam. The dam is classified as small size with a significant hazard classification. The pipe spillway is a 10-inch cast iron metal pipe drop-inlet that connects to a 10-inch cast iron metal pipe which passes through the dam at low level and an open channel cut at the left abutment. The spillways will pass 7 percent of the PMF or 36 percent of the SDF without overtopping the crest of the dam. The effects of overtopping from the SDF are not considered detrimental to the embankment. The spillway is adjudged as inadequate, but not seriously inadequate. The visual inspection revealed no problems in need of immediate attention. However, there is no regular maintenance operations program or warning system. It is recommended that a regular maintenance and operations program be instituted with provisions for records of all maintenance performed.
