Abstract:

The dam is about 15 ft. high and 220 ft. long. The condition of the dam is fair to poor. The dam has been overtopped in the past. The spillway will not pass the test flood 12PMF and overtopping of the dam will result. The spillway flume is cracked and has settled, and the outlet gate is inoperable. It is recommended that the downstream face of the dam be redesigned and rebuilt to preclude erosion and to eliminate the potential instability. A regular maintenance and operation program should be instituted.
