Abstract:

Winsor Dam and Goodnough Dike are full hydraulic fill earth embankments, having maximum heights of 170 and 135 ft. and lengths of 2640 and 2140 ft., respectively. Quabbin Spillway is an ungated masonry weir, having a maximum height of approximately 14 ft. and an overall length of 405 ft. The projects are in excellent to good condition. There were no obvious signs of failure or conditions which would warrant urgent remedial treatment. Hydraulic analyses indicate that the Quabbin Spillway in combination with the auxiliary spillway at Winsor Dam, are adequate in size to safely pass the test flood, calculated from the probable maximum flood, without overtopping Winsor Dam or Goodnough Dike.
