Abstract:

Lake Akiba Dam is a 360-foot long, 22-foot high earth embankment dam, constructed in 1926 to provide a lake for recreational use. The maximum storage capacity of Lake Akiba is 280 acre-feet. The dam has a crest width of approximately seven feet and side slopes both upstream and downstream which average 2H1V. Based upon the visual inspection of the dam review of the information provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources Der, the Lake Akiba Dam is considered to be in fair condition. The spillway, however, is in poor condition an should be investigated immediately.
