Abstract : The purpose of this study was to determine the downstream hazard potential of the Upper Hurricane Reservoir in Hartford, Vermont. The work was completed for the Vermont Department of Environmental, Conservation's Dam Safety Program. Various dam break flood conditions were modeled and inundation maps developed. Based on this analysis the dam is rated a Class 2 or significant hazard category in terms of its potential to cause downstream damage. Introductory information was also developed to aid in the development of an Emergency Plan in the event of an impending dam failure.
