Missouri Dam Safety Inspection Reports

Abstract

This report presents the results of field inspection and evaluation of St. Joe State Park Dam (MO 30277):

It was prepared under the National Program of Inspection of Non-Federal Dams.

This dam has been classified as unsafe, non-emergency by the St. Louis District as a result of the application of the following criteria:

a. The original dam of St. Joe State Park Dam, which has no spillway, will retain less than one-half the Probable Maximum Flood without the original dam being overtopped.

b. Overtopping could result in failure of the original dam.

c. Dam failure significantly increased the hazard to life and property downstream.

For Phase I reports, the extent of the downstream damage zone has been determined assuming that all the materials contained by the St. Joe State Park Dam are in a liquid state.
