Abstract:

The earth dam is in good to fair condition, having stood for more than 140 yrs. The only visible signs of distress are the sloughed areas on the upstream slope of the dam near the gate house and cavitation of the walls of the discharge conduit. The dam has a significant hazard potential. It is recommended that the owner solicit the services of a qualified consultant to make a detailed hydrological and hydraulic investigation of the entire drainage area. Author.
