Submitted for Inspection... EERP Dam #1
« on: January 08, 2020, 08:00:22 pm »
Dam number 1 is listed as one of the smaller sized dams in area.. but it's steep enough and about 25-28' tall... and it has a hole in it.. a culvert.

It's listed on the Canal Project as a Moderate Safety Level and actually has been cleared to move the safety rating back to LOW or None on next inspection. The culvert, which lets a small stream pass under the canal, is accessible to inspect as you can see by the pictures. It looks great, but I have no before pictures to show... maybe others do.

So you have seen the pictures...you answer the questions

1) Is it made of Earth?
2) Is it a Dam?
3) Is it now covered with the correct vegetation?
4) Can proper Dam Inspections be performed?

Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes.

If you can't see the truth with this one...keep going, there are many more examples coming
