The dam is a concrete gravity dam with an overall length of 152 ft. and a height of 21 ft. The dam is classified as small and has a low hazard potential in the event of a dam failure. The dam is in poor condition. The lack of maintenance during the last 15-20 years may have rendered the dam economically unsalvageable. To avoid substantial costs to rehabilitate this dam, it is recommended that the dam be breached. A program of annual periodic technical inspections should be instituted. Author
