Abstract:

The dam is an earth embankment dam with a downstream stone masonry wall. The dam is about 320 ft. long and 17 ft. high. The dam is considered to be in generally good condition. The overall rating must be fair, however, due to the spillway inadequacy. It is intermediate in size with a high hazard potential. The test flood for the dam is the PMF. Author
