Abstract:

The dam has a hydraulic height of 14.5 ft. and is 206 ft. long. The dam is in fair condition. Concerns are the inadequate spillway capacity, the inability to inspect stone faces of overflow spillway, and the rutting and disturbance of the valley bottom to the left of the discharge channel. It is intermediate in size with a significant hazard classification. A major breach with pool level at the top of the dam could result in the loss of 1-2 lives and cause appreciable damage to property. Author.
