Abstract:

The dam is an earth embankment 280 ft. long with a maximum height of 12 ft. It is small in size with a low hazard potential. The dam, which has withstood severe floods without failure or evident distress in the past, is in fair condition, but it is noted that the pond was empty at the time of inspection. The dam must be reinspected at full pool. While the hazard to life and property around the Lake in the event of a failure is low, the possible effects of a failure on the dam are of considerable concern. Author
