The stone masonry gravity dam has a hydraulic height of 23 ft., and a length of 190 ft. The dam is presently in fair condition however, there are deficiencies which if not corrected could jeopardize the safety and integrity of the structure. The major concern is undermining of the base of the dam which has left a section of the downstream face unsupported. It is small in size with a hazard potential of high. A registered professional should be hired to design repairs to pressure leaks which appear in the face of the dam. Author.
