Abstract:

This dam consists of an earth embankment, and a concrete wall which extends from the embankments to the spillway on each end of the spillway. The earth embankment is 500 feet long, 8 feet wide at the top and 6.7 feet high, with a downstream slope of 2H1V. The concrete spillway is located at the western end of the dam and is 40 feet long with 15 inch high permanently attached timber flashboards. Based on the visual inspection, and past operational performance, the dam is judged to be in POOR condition. There are large trees growing on the embankment. The concrete wall is severely cracked and spalled and has been exposed on the downstream side by erosion. Seepage is occurring through the wall and all along the downstream toe of the embankment. The test flood for this dam is the 100 year flood. The test flood has an inflow equal to 1810 cfs and an outflow discharge equal to 1800 cfs at a stillwater elevation of 233.1 which will overtop the dam by 1.0 foot. The maximum outflow capacity of the spillway with the water level at the top of the dam is 53 cfs, which is 3 percent of the test flood outflow.
