Abstract:

Based on the Visual inspection, the dam and dike are judged to be in good condition. Features that could affect the future integrity of the dam and dike are seepage exiting downstream of the dam, possible deterioration of the 48-inch outlet pipe, continued erosion of the spillway discharge channel, and the presence of large trees along the toe of the dike. The Test Flood inflow of 2,350 cfs results in a Test Flood routed outflow of 1,970 cfs which overtops the dike by 0.3 feet. The spillway capacity with the water level at the top of the dike is 1,050 cfs and is equal to 53 precent of the Test Flood routed outflow.
