Reservoir No. 7 Dam is an earthfill structure approximately 12.9 feet high and 300 feet in length including spillway. The 30 foot wide spillway is an uncontrolled sharp-crested concrete weir located near the right abutment of the dam. The dam is located in Canaan Township, Wayne County, Pennsylvania, and is used for water supply. The deficiencies noted during this inspection are basically maintenance related. The operational condition of the sluice gate and valve on the outlet works conduit should be determined and repairs made. The upstream gate should be closed and the downstream valve left open to prevent pressure within the pipe. The discharge end of the conduit should be cleared of obstructions. The deterioration of the spillway wingwalls and discharge channel walls should be repaired. All debris should be removed from in front of the weir, as well as with all trees in the discharge channel immediately below the concrete chute.
