What dam would this be? East Branch?

Looking at the map, it appears that it may be the dam at Buzzard Swamp.

Built by the same crew that built the Austin Dam? lol

It is the Loleta swimming area dam. From looking at some pictures, it looks like the right side of the lower (downstream) dam is crumbling due to old age. I wonder what this would do to the streams ecology, and how/who is responsible for fortifying the dam... Interesting stuff.
