Abstract:

Ray County Dam No. A-1 was inspected to make an assessment of the general condition of the dam with respect to safety, based upon available data and visual inspection, in order to determine if the dam poses hazards to human life or property. Our inspection and evaluation indicates the spillway does not meet the criteria set forth in the guidelines for a dam having the above size and hazard potential. The spillway will not pass the probable maximum flood without overtopping but will pass 60 percent of the probable maximum flood, which is greater than the 100-year flood. The spillway design flood recommended by the guidelines is the probable maximum flood. The probable maximum flood is defined as the flood discharge that may be expected from the most severe combination of critical meteorologic and hydrologic conditions that are reasonably possible in the region. Deficiencies visually observed by the inspection team were minor amounts of erosion along cattle paths, and erosion of the discharge channel.
