Abstract:

The dam is a large concrete and stone masonry dam with earth embankments. The overall length is about 500 ft. with a maximum height of 27 ft. The dam is assessed to be in poor condition. Problems include structural cracking of an unknown origin, embankment seepage, and low spillway capacity. A test flood of 23,700 cfs inflow into the reservoir would overtop the dam by about 3.2 ft.
