Massachusetts

Delaney Multipurpose Complex Dam
Sponsor: State of Massachusetts, Department of Conservation and Recreation
Status: Construction

Mississippi

Greasy Creek LT-1A-11
Sponsor: Greasy Creek Drainage District
Status: Planning

LT-1A-11 is one of fifteen floodwater retarding structures built within the Greasy Creek Watershed under the authority of Public Law 78-534 Flood Control Act of 1944 as amended. The construction of Site LT-1A-11 was completed in 1960. Downstream hazards associated with the site have changed during its life. Rural Lafayette County is located downstream of the site with three occupied dwellings within the potential breach inundation area downstream of the dam. In the event of a sudden dam failure there would be an eminent threat to human life for the occupants of these dwellings. Dams with downstream hazards have more stringent design criteria than sites without downstream hazards. Because of the current downstream hazards, Site LT-1A-11 does not meet current safety and performance standards and is judged to be “unsafe”.

Oregon

Plat 1
Sponsor: Sutherlin Water Control District

The Plat 1 dam was constructed by the Soil Conservation Service (now the Natural Resources Conservation Service) in 1966 to provide irrigation water to agricultural producers in the Sutherlin watershed area, located in southwest Oregon in Douglas County. It also provides flood storage and recreational opportunities to the area. The dam is reaching the end of its 50-year design life. NRCS, in conjunction with the Sutherlin Water Control District, is proposing to rehabilitate the dam and address aging infrastructure issues. The two parties are working together to evaluate the dam and develop and implement rehabilitation recommendations. NRCS is currently working on a series of studies, investigations, modeling, and analysis to assess and document the current state of the dams and to provide a basis for developing more detailed engineering plans for the dams. These engineering plans will detail work needed to bring the dams up to current environmental, engineering, safety, and seismic standards. Throughout this process, NRCS and the District will be conducting public meetings and will be coordinating with state, federal, and local agencies.
