On the basis of the visual examination, there were no signs of impending structural failure or other conditions which would warrant urgent remedial action however, a number of serious deficiencies were noted. Since there were no drawings available, the evaluation of this dam is based primarily on visual examination, limiting measurements at the site, approximate hydraulic and hydrologic computations , and application of engineering judgement. It is recommended that the following additional investigations be performed by a registered professional engineer engaged by the owner 1 The present embankment sections adjacent to the spillway represent a potential hazard to the dam with respect to possible erosion, piping andor failure of the dam during high reservoir levels. Therefore, regrade this to make the embankment section conform to the embankment cross sections elsewhere. In addition, adequately protect these sections from spillway outflows and 2 Investigate the seepage that was observed near the downstream toe of slope, including observation during high and low reservoir levels, evaluate the cause and recommend appropriate remedial measures.
