Abstract:

Mountain Pond Dam is located on the north end of Mountain Pond in Sanbornton, N.H., in mountainous terrain two miles south of the village of New Hampton. The dam is an earth embankment, 97 feet long and 14 feet high with a gated 8-inch outlet. The impoundment stores the water supply for the Town of New Hampton and is also the fire protection reserve. It is small in size with a low hazard potential. The test flood is in the range of a 50 to 100 year frequency. The condition of the dam is considered to be fair, requiring that modifications be made by the owner within 1-2 years after receipt of this inspection report. Keywords include Inspection, Dam safety, Merrimack River Basin, Sanbornton, New Hampshire, and Tributary of Pemigewasset River.
