Abstract:

This report assesses the general condition of the dam with respect to safety, based on available data and on visual inspection, to determine if the dam poses hazards to human life or property. The inspection results indicate problems with the toe of the dam. Previous mining activity at the toe of the dam is noteworthy in that it has produced an oversteepended face below the dam. Erosion has further steepended this cut face.
