Honesdale. Pa., Oct. 2, 1912.
Hon. C. A. McCarty, Burgess,
Your letter of Sept. 25th received
in which you stated that many peo
ple of Honesdale and vicinity wero
becoming alarmed about the unsafe
condition of tho Lako Lodoro dam.
In accordance with your request, I
appointed a committee ot three prac
tical men to Investigate the situation,
which they havo done. They looked
tho ground over carefully and 1
herewith hand you tho report of their
investigation which I am sure will
allay any fears tho people may have
concerning the dam.
President Borough Council.
To tho President of the Town Coun
cil of the Borough ol Honesdale:
We, the undersigned, having been
appointed by tho President of the
Town Council of Honesdale, as a
committee to inspect the concrete
dam at Lake Lodoro, to ascertain, if
possible, tho danger of any outbreak,
and having mado the Inspection to
the best of our ability, beg leave to
make tho following statements in re
gard to the condition of the dam.
At several points in tho structure
there are leaks, the majority of
which are not largo. Two or three,
however, are of considerable size.
The ends of tho dam are In good con
dition and there Is no danger of any
outbreak around them.
At a point near the center of the
structure a crock runs entirely
through the dam from Uio Imso to
tlio top.. This, In our opinion, Is the
weakest point of tho dam. We
found two excavations below the
dam, and upon Inquiry, learned that
tiro LaKo Louore company were
building two concrete buttresses In
support of the weak points of tho
dam, ono of theso being directly be
hind tlio fracture. Theso are found
ed upon solid rock and toed Into the
structure. Tho blue prints of this
work wero shown, and according to
them, the buttresses will bo of ample
size and strength to support the
dam. Wo understand that this work
was recommended by iho State En
glneer and is being done according
to his plans and under his super
vision. If this work is completed
according to specifications, there
seems to be little danger of the dam
giving way. Tho old dam, lying
about fifty feet above the new con
crete dam, still remains. The bulk
head of tho dam being in place.
This bulkhead, we are told, is filled
up to a point within five feet of the
high water mark of the lake. If a
break should occur In tho new dam,
It Is claimed only five feet of water
could flow from tho lako, "which
passing through a width of only six
or eight feet would cause little, if
any, trouble to Honesdalo. This,
so far as It was possible to ascertain,
Is the present condition of tho above
