Asher Dam at Crystal Lake

Erdman Anthony prepared the required Inspection & Maintenance Plan for the Asher Dam in the Village of Rhinebeck. Asher Dam is classified as a B-Intermediate Hazard Dam. Services included reviewing the existing documentation for the dam, interviewing dam personnel about current inspection and notification procedures, and reviewing the dam components at the site. If any potential issues with a particular dam had been discovered, Erdman Anthony made note of those in a separate letter in order for the department to address them further and make appropriate planning decisions.

Erdman Anthony also prepared the Emergency Action Plan (EAP) which included an inundation analysis and inundation map. The purpose of the EAP is for use in the event of a developing dam failure or other uncontrolled release of stored water.
