Abstract:

The dam is an earth embankment, about 300 ft. long and 40 ft. high, with a 6 ft. wide channel spillway. Lives in the houses would be threatened by a dam failure. It is intermediate in size with a high hazard category. The test flood for the dam is the PMF. The dam is in fair condition at the present time. Further investigations are recommended to evaluate the adequacy of the spillway and the stability of the downstream slope. Author
