Abstract:

Based on a visual inspection, operational history, and available engineering data, Heritage Reservation Dam is considered to be in excellent condition. The size classification of the facility is intermediate and the hazard classification is considered to be high. In accordance with the recommended guidelines, the Spillway Design Flood SDF is considered to be the PMF Probable Maximum Flood. Results of the hydrologic and hydraulic analysis indicate that the facility is capable of passing andor storing the PMF without overtopping the dam or dike. Consequently, the spillway is considered adequate.
