The Dam is Well-Maintained

Questions were raised as to the actual condition of the dam. Here’s a list of some repairs and upgrades which were noted by the dam owner in the process before the Sutton Conservation Commission.

November, 2008: Routine maintenance – mow downstream face, debris from the drain lines, seal gap between spillway box and stone masonry, repair spillway floor and expansion joints, repoint upstream face above waterlevel.

September, 2008: Improvements to the cage around the gate.

October, 2006: Replacement and updating of the low-level gate. (see slideshow at top right)

Repair to spillway concrete box culvert.

Extensive changes with the crest widened and raised and the downstream embankment was constructed.
