Length of the dam is defined as the length along the top of the dam. This also includes the spillway, powerplant, navigation lock, fish pass, etc., where these form part of the length of the dam. If detached from the dam, these structures should not be included.
Hydraulic height of the dam is defined as the vertical difference between the maximum design water level and the lowest point in the original streambed.
Normal storage is defined as the total storage space in a reservoir below the normal retention level, including dead and inactive storage and excluding any flood control or surcharge storage. For normally dry flood control dams, the normal storage will be a zero value.
Surface area, in acres, of the impoundment at its normal retention level.
Drainage area of the dam, in square miles, which is defined as the area that drains to a particular point (in this case, the dam) on a river or stream.
Dams assigned the low hazard potential classification are those where failure or misoperation results in no probable loss of human life and low economic and/or environ-mental losses. Losses are principally limited to the owner’s property.
Inspections are every 10 years.
