The Corcoran’s Pond Dam

Corcoran’s Pond is a popular tourist destination in Waterville Valley as well as a revenue-generating venue for weddings and community events. The earthen dam is classified as “high hazard” by NHDES because of the risk of flooding during storm events. Wright-Pierce presented four options to stabilize the dam and protect and sustain the Town Square. Armoring the spillway embankments was the selected option.
