Abstract:

Inspection of the Rush Reservoir Dam did not indicate conditions which would constitute an immediate hazard to human life or property. The hydrologichydraulic analysis indicates that the impoundment will contain the runoff from the PMP without overtopping of the structure. Therefore, the spillway is assessed as adequate. The following remedial work should be undertaken during normal maintenance operations within one year 1 Woodchuck burrows should be filled in and the rodents eliminated from the facility 2 The area where seepage occurs should be monitored and records should be kept to detect any change in flow which might indicate worsening conditions 3 Remove the trees from the embankment and from the area near the toe of slope 4 A flood warning and emergency evacuation system should be implemented to alert the public in the event conditions occur which could result in failure of the dam and 5 A formalized inspection system should be initiated to develop data on conditions and maintenance operations at the facility.
