Scotts Millpond Dam consists of two earthfill embankments located on the left and right sides of a natural knoll. Scotts Millpond Dam is a small size - significant hazard structure as defined by the Recommended Guidelines for Safety Inspection of Dams. Visual inspection of the dam revealed several major deficiencies requiring further attention. The depth, duration, and rate of overtopping flows are considered detrimental to the right embankment and there is a high probability the embankment would fail if the SDF would occur. The spillway is adjudged as inadequate. The spillway is not adjudged as seriously inadequate since dam failure from overtopping would not significantly increase the hazard to loss of life downstream from the dam over that which would exist just before overtopping failure.
