This dam is classified as an intermediate size dam with a high downstream hazard potential. According to the St. Louis District, Corps of Engineers the estimated damage zone extends 20 miles downstream of the dam. Within the first mile of the damage zone are 6 homes and the bridge of one improved road. The flood plain is farmed. The inspection and evaluation indicates the spillway does meet the criteria set forth in the guidelines for a dam having the above size and hazard potential. The spillway will pass the probable maximum flood without overtopping. Deficiencies visually observed by the inspection team were erosion and seepage indicated by moist soil near the east abutment on the downstream embankment slope. There were no observed deficiencies or conditions existing at the time of the inspection which indicated an immediate safety hazard.
