Abstract:

The dam is an earth embankment about 2900 ft. long and 33 ft. high. The dam is in good condition. The spillway capacity is inadequate to pass the test flood outflow it would pass about 40 of the test flood. Several seepage points were noted on the downstream slope. There are various remedial measures which should be undertaken by the owner. Author
