block mats are being placed
over the surface of the existing dam embankment by Leonard S. Fiore Inc.
of Altoona. The 8-by-40 foot mats, shown up close in the inset, are made
of open-celled concrete blocks that are cabled together to form a contiguous
carpet. This system will help preserve the integrity of the dam in the
event of spilling over during a significant flood. They will be covered
with topsoil from the lake floor and seeded, helping to protect the blocks
from deterioration while creating a natural, aesthetic appearance.
