Abstract : Wigwam Lake Dam is located on Wigwam Run in Stroud Township, Monroe County, one mile east of Bartonsville, Pennsylvania. The original purpose of the impounded water was for ice making and recreation. Presently, the lake is being used for recreation. The overall appearance of the dam and its appurtenant structures is considered to be poor. The locations of observed deficiencies are shown on the Sketch Plan. The profile and typical sections of the dam are presented, and are based on field survey made on the day of inspection. The survey datum for this inspection was an approximate elevation obtained for the spillway crest from a USGS map. The construction drawings for the dam and appurtenant structures are shown. The elevations shown on the construction drawings are based on a different datum than that of the USGS map. Therefore, to convert the elevations shown on the appended construction drawings to the elevations used in this report, it is necessary to add 609 feet to the elevations shown on the appended drawings. On the inspection date (11/26/80), the lake level was 0.1 foot above the spillway crest (elevation 708 above mean sea level). Deficiencies observed during the field inspection are describes. Visible features of the dam are depicted in photographs.
