Abstract:

The dam is a gravity structure of split stone masonry. It is about 160 ft. long and 15.6 ft. high. The drainage area for this dam covers 113 square miles of rolling woodland with some minor development and pasture. It is small in size with a significant hazard potential, since appreciable economic loss and possible loss of a few lives could result in the event of a dam failure. Since the risk downstream in the event of a dam failure is on the high side of significant, the 12 PMF has been adopted as the appropriate test flood. Author.
