    R.D. Bailey Lake

    R.D. Bailey Lake was authorized by Section 203 of Flood Control Act of 1962. The primary project purposes are flood risk management, water quality and recreation. The dam was completed in 1980 and serves a drainage area of 540 square miles. The lake is impounded by a rock and random-fill dam with a concrete face and an uncontrolled broad-crested saddle spillway.
