Abstract:

The dam is comprised of an 82 foot long stone masonry spillway, a 450 foot earth embankment to the left of the spillway, and a 30 foot earth embankment to the right of the spillway. The spillway can pass 7 percent of this flow. The dam would be overtopped by 6 feet. The dam is in generally good condition. It is felt, however, that certain normal maintenance and operational procedures need attention. These include removal of brush and trees on the upstream and downstream slopes development of a formal warning system and monitoring of the condition of the downstream training wall. Also repairs to the walkway over the spillway are required.
