The dam is an earth embankment about 250 ft. long and 17 ft. high. The dam is judged to be in fair condition with several maintenance items that require attention to insure the long term performance of the dam. It is intermediate in size with a significant hazard potential. The test flood for the dam is the full PMF. Overtopping could result in the failure of this earth embankment.
