Abstract:

This report provides information and analysis on the physical condition of the dam as of the report date. Information and analysis are based on visual inspection of the dam by the performing organization. The examination of documents and the visual inspection of the Glen Creek Dam did not reveal conditions which constitute an immediate hazard to human life or property. However, several deficiencies were noted which should be remedied. The hydrologichydraulic analysis performed indicates that the spillway will pass only 30 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood PMF before overtopping. However, overtopping of the abutments in this case of a concrete arch dam is not likely to cause failure of the dam. Therefore, according to the Corps of Engineers Guidelines, the spillway is assessed as inadequate. Author
