Abstract:

The dam has a hydraulic height of 28 ft. and is 420 ft. long. It is a run-of-the-river concrete counterfort combined with a concrete gravity dam. The dam is in poor condition with some major concerns. It is small in size with a significant hazard potential. A major breach at top of dam would probably result in the loss of 3 to 4 lives and appreciable damage. Author.
