Abstract:

Based on visual inspection, Acre Pond Dam is judged to be in fair structural condition. In the absence of an adequate spillway, the dam is subject to frequent overtopping. Based on the location of the downstream dwellings and the fact that a few lives could be lost should the dam fail, the dam is classified as a significant hazard dam. Since the spillway cannot pass the 100- year flood without overtopping the dam, the spillway is rated as inadequate. Although there is some seepage thru the dam, there is no evidence of structural instability. There is no formal inspection and maintenance program or warning system and evacuation plan in effect at Acre Pond Dam. The dam is not properly maintained.
