The US Army and Stetson Engineering Inspected and Failed the Dam “A” Spillways ( Dam 230 )
Has the Dam’s Spillways been INCREASED in Capacity as a Result ? Have any Improvements to the Inadequate Operating Capacity been perfomed ? If So When and Where are those Plans, Drawings and Reports ?
The ENTIRE HISTORY of Dam “A” or # 230 is replete with allegations by STATE AUTHORITIES ( Attorney Generals, District Attorneys, Conservation Commission Etc Etc ) That High and Low Water and Ice Conditions directly caused vast Island, Shoreline, Bulkhead, Boathouse and Dock Damages on Lake George.
The ONLY CONCLUSION that can be drawn from Up and Down and Up and Down and Up and Down Water and Ice Levels reveals The CONTROL MECHANISM ( The Spillways ) are Seriously TO SMALL , 54% To Small.
What Upgrading and Increasing of the Spillway Release Capacity has been done since the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s ?
Who has those records and files and where are They ?
It appears beyond the shadow of all doubt That many State Attorney Generals, County Prosecutors, State Legislators, Several Counties and even more Towns and Villages have for many years with countless Material Witnesses observed the DESTRUCTION Caused by the so Called PINHOLE IN THE BATH TUB …..

The capacity has been likened to draining a bathtub through a pinhole. When water entering the lake exceeds the maximum rate that can be discharged, the lake rises. Each winter the lake is drawn down in anticipation of the spring snow melt. Snow surveys help to estimate the amount of water that is resident in the basin’s …
Has this INADEQUATE Condition ever been REPAIRED ??
