Cataract Lake emergency spillway, southwestern Indiana
The Cataract Lake emergency spillway in Putnam County, Indiana, is in the SW¼NW¼ Sec.13, T.12N., R.5W. (Poland Quadrangle). The spillway cut is most easily reached by following the secondary road indicated in Figure 1 north from Indiana 42, a distance of about 2 mi (3.2 km). The secondary road thatleads to the spillway cut is identified by a Corps of Engineers sign that points the way to the reservoir dam. The intersection of Indiana 42 with the road to the spillway is about 5 mi (8 km) south of 1-70 and is 1.8 mi (3 km) east of Poland, Indiana, and 4.6 mi (7.4 km) west of the intersection of Indiana 243 and Indiana 42 (Fig. 1). The spillway cut is immediately adjacent to the secondary road that runs north from Indiana 42. Because the spillway cut is a restricted area, permission to enter should be obtained at the Corps of Engineers office just north of the dam.
