Abstract:

The dam has a hydraulic height of 33 ft. and is 100 ft. long. It is an earthen embankment with a roadway running along the crest. The dam and dike are in fair condition. There are various concerns which should be corrected. It is small in size with a significant hazard potential for the dam and low hazard for the dike. A major breach at top of dam could result in appreciable damage to farmland as well as the possible loss of sections of Rt. 26, which would be subjected to erosive velocities. Author
