Abstract:

The visual inspection and review of available design and construction data indicate that Lake Irena Dam is in fair condition. In accordance with the guidance provided, the spillway design flood SDF ranges between the 100 year flood and 12 the PMF. Based on the size and extent of downstream hazard for the dam, the SDF selected for this facility was the 100 year flood. The hydrologic and hydraulic computations indicate that the spillway will pass the selected SDF prior to overtopping the embankment. Therefore, in accordance with the recommended criteria for Phase I inspections, the spillway for Lake Irena Dam is considered to be adequate. Author
