Similar deposition would have occurred in the "full" dam. but much of it would have occurred below the pennanent water level. Archaeology The archaeological art site in the vicinity of the spillway channel and the area around Tom's Yard would be protected from construction activity. For this reason, an alternative source of filter sand would be found. Dam Break The impact of the dam in the most unlikely event of dam break would be similar to that outlined in the EIS, although a "blue sky" failure (ie. one which occurs when there is no t100ding in the river) would no longer be a possibility as the dam would nor permanently store any significant volume of water. ." 12
