Abstract:

Arlington Lake Dam is an earth and concrete structure approximately 240 feet long with a maximum height of about 13 feet. A two stage, ungated overflow spillway system is located at the left abutment of the dam. A drop inlet spillway is located at the approximate midpoint of the embankment. Arlington Lake Dam has a drainage area of approximately 1.7 square miles and impounds a reservoir with a maximum storage capacity of about 51 acre-feet at the low point of the top of the dam. The spillway system is classified as seriously inadequate. The dam is classified as unsafe, non-emergency. Based on the visual observations, discussions with the owner, and information obtained from the pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, Division of Dam Safety, Arlington Lake Dam is considered to be in poor condition.
