Abstract:

Mascoma Lake Dam is located in the central eastern part of the State of New Hampshire and about 10 miles above the mouth of the Mascoma River, which is a tributary of the Connecticut River. The dam site is 3 miles upstream from the city of Lebanon and the small village of Mascoma is situated near the dam. The dam is of timber and stone crib with earth dikes as wingwalls. The maximum height of the dam is about 18 ft. and is about 575 ft. long. The dam is judged to be in fair condition. It is intermediate in size with a high hazard potential classification. The project will pass about 13 percent of the test flood peak outflow without overtopping the earth dike. There are various remedial measures which should be implemented.
