This report provides a summary record of significant design, construction and operational data on the Gillham Dam and Reservoir. It was prepared in accordance with ER 1110-2-1901, Embankment Criteria and Performance Report, and is for use by engineers to familiarize themselves with the project, re-evaluate the embankment when needed, and for guidance in design of comparable future projects. The report presents a general description of the foundation conditions, type of material and placement methods of the various sections of the embankment, the design considerations on stability and seepage control, significant operational events, and an evaluation of the conditions of the embankment. Pertinent drawings, design and construction data, and photos are also included. The Gillham Dam and Reservoir are located in Howard and Polk Counties, Arkansas. The dam consists of a rockfill embankment with compacted earth core, concrete gravity spillway controlled by tainter gates, and an intake structure. The project purposes are flood control, water supply, water quality, recreation, and fish and wildlife conservation.
