They write about a NPP that is even operating at the time and is 67 miles to the south designed to withstand a 6.5 magnitude earthquake directly under the containment building but nothing about the Ledgemere Dam, also known as Lake Arrowhead Dam (within 2 miles of the epicenter) which is an earthen dam constructed with timber crib and rock fill. The core is homogeneous. The foundation is rock. Its height is 25 feet with a length of 398 feet. Construction was completed in 1905. It has a normal surface area of 1.7 square miles. It is owned by Fpl Energy Maine Hydro Llc.
Maximum discharge is 10400 cubic feet per second. Its capacity is 10700 acre feet (~3.5 billion gallons). It drains an area of 157 square miles. If this puppy burst many people are dead within minutes!!!
