Abstract:

This report is based upon a visual inspection, a review of the past performance and a brief hydrological study of the Pine Island Lake Dam and dike. The dam is a 25 ft. high, 90 ft. long earth and stone dam with an ungated twin 36 inch pipe spillway and two manually operated drains. The dam was found to be generally in poor condition and the dike to be in fair condition. Indications of seepage were observed at the dam and dike. Both have a size classification of intermediate. The dam hazard potential is high and the dikes is significant. There are various remedial measures that the owner should engage in.
