Abstract:

Williams Lake Dam is an earth embankment dam with a downstream rubble masonry wall. The dam is about 183 ft. long and 6 ft. high. The dam is small in size and has a hazard potential of high. Failure of the dam would flood Interstate Route I-495 and a housing development and possibly cause the loss of a few lives. The dam is judged to be in poor condition. At the time of inspection, brush growth was evident on the embankment.
