This project analyzes the stability and safety of the Lake Anasagunticook Dam on Whitney Brook in Canton, Maine and investigates alternative designs for repair and replacement of the existing dam. Hydrologic and hydraulic analyses were performed to determine the design flood, operating heights of the river, and appropriate configuration for the dam. A hinge crest gate dam was recommended as the best solution and a final design was completed that included analysis of the structure and foundation.
