Project Description:
The applicant proposes to repair an 8'H x 18'W dam that impounds approximately 210,000 gallons in a pond which is approximately 5 feet deep.  The proposal includes repair of a 6' x 15' x 40' man made breach in an existing dam, installation of a low-level 12" outlet drain and conduit, reconstruction of the service spillway (4' x 3.7'), and the creation of an auxiliary spillway (2' x 18').  The top of the dam will be raised by 2 feet.  A temporary channel diversion through the breached area will be accomplished via a temporary earthen dike to isolate the work area from the water.  Rock rip rap will be placed on both faces of the dam, and as a splash apron to minimize soil erosion.  All disturbed areas will be seeded and mulched  to establish a permanent vegetative cover of exposed soil.  The dam is located on Burpee Brook, a Class C(T) stream, off Burpee Road in the Town of Lewis.
