Abstract:

The drainage area is 2.0 square miles and the reservoir has 825 acre-feet of storage capacity. The assessment of the dam is based on a visual inspection, past operational performance and hydraulichydrologic computations. The dam is judged to be in FAIR condition with several areas that require attention. These areas include seepage through the dam in the vicinity of the low-level discharge pipes and wet spots along the toe of the dam, vegetation on the embankments as well as along the toe of the dam and the inoperable status of the low-level discharge pipe. The test flood outflow will not overtop the dam and will leave 0.4 feet of freeboard.
