Abstract:

The dam is about 900 ft. long with a maximum height of about 29.5 ft. The facility was found to be in good condition but is rated fair because seismic analysis is lacking for the facility. It is intermediate in size with a hazard potential of high. Investigations are recommended to assess the seismic ability and to establish criteria for monitoring the existing piezometers.
