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 visual inspection of the Delmar Reservoir No. 1 Dam did not reveal conditions which constitute a hazard to human life or property. Since this is a storage reservoir with an embankment entirely surrounding the pond area, the hydraulichydrologic analysis was not performed in the usual manner of modeling a watershed area. The drainage area for this structure was limited to the reservoir itself. From normal water surface elevation to the top of the dam, the Probable Maximum Flood can safely be stored and discharged through the overflow pipe. Therefore, the spillway is therefore assessed as adequate. Author
