Abstract : ER No. 1110-1-1801, dated 1 April 1983, multiple letter SPDVG(3 (GG) 65-34, dated 8 August 1965 and SPK OM 335-2-2, dated 1 July 1978, outline the need and scope of foundation reports and authorize their preparation for major Civil Works projects. This report insures the preservation for future use of a complete record of foundation conditions encountered during construction and of methods used to adapt structures to those conditions. It will be retained for permanent record and will serve as a basis of analysis for maintenance work, any future foundation or subsurface problems which may arise, and for determining the validity of claims presented by the Contractor. The report discusses the geology and physical condition of the Embankment foundation, the Spillway foundation and the Parley's Creek Diversion Structure foundation. The geology of the Outlet Works Tunnel and the foundations for the Intake Structure, Downstream Operational Control Structure, and the Plunge Pool are also included. The report was reviewed by the Sacramento District Geotechnical Branch, Soil Design and Geology Sections. The Little Dell Lake Project is located about eight (8) miles east of Salt Lake City in the western part of the Wasatch Mountains. The dam is located on Dell Creek approximately 1.25 miles upstream of the existing Mountain Dell Reservoir. Dell Creek, a tributary to Parley's Creek, flows westward to the Jordan River and ultimately to the Great Salt Lake. An auxiliary 1.4 Description of Project. The main project features include the dam, outlet works, spillway and Parley's Creek Diversion Structures. (MM)
