Abstract:

The Milton Leather Board Dam is a mortar-laid stone masonry and concrete gravity dam founded on bedrock. The dam varies from about 2 ft. to about 32 ft. high, and is about 350 ft. long. Based on the visual inspection and reports of past operational performance, the dam is assessed to be in fair condition. Areas of major concern regarding the long-term safety of the dam include deterioration of the concrete dike section and the concrete stop log piers. It is small in size with a significant hazard potential. Keywords include Inspection, Dam safety, Piscataqua River Basin, Milton, New Hampshire, and Salmon Falls River.
