Based on visual inspection, the Deckers Dam is judged to be in good condition. The spillway capacity of Deckers Dam is rated as adequate. The unknown condition of the valve, regulating flow through the outlet pipe, precluded assessment of the outlet works. Observations during pressure flow conditions in the outlet pipe are essential to the safety evaluation of the dam. A ready access to an operable valve, or other method of drawing down the reservoir level during emergencies, is required. Although the dam and appurtenances appear to be in good repair, there is no formal maintenance program for the facility. There is no warning system and evacuation plan in effect at the present time.
