Paper Mill Pond consists of a 17 foot long concrete spillway and a 15 foot long concrete dam, all completely surrounded by buildings of Amerbelle Corporation. At top of a dam elevation, the dam impounds 90 acre-feet. Outlet works consist of a drawdown conduit of unknown size and twin 8-inch line for process water. Under normal conditions, the entire flow of the Hockanum River discharges over the spillway. This dam has a maximum height of 16.7 feet with the top of dam 5.5 feet above the spillway crest. The dam is in fair condition with some seepage from the face of dam and some deteriorated concrete. In addition to the operable outlet works, there is the 48-inch metal penstock that was originally used to supply water to the generator turbine. This outlet is plugged and the pipe partially filled and collapsed.
