Background[edit | edit source]
Binding the two sides of a crevasse to create an artificial reservoir upstream, Crevasse Dam was suffering from safety issues despite a high dam integrity rating, which caused Harold Nowak to inspect the facility and its reports of exposed wiring and signage removal. Firing C. Hill raised the safety rating from 3/10 to 10/10. The Crevasse Dam survived the Great War perfectly intact and was later used by the Free States to flush the river of radiation when the Mire's wildlife got particularly aggressive. Graffiti on the buildings' walls also indicates some sort of raider presence after the war, though super mutants now occupy the location.
Layout[edit | edit source]
Crevasse Dam has two buildings in addition to the dam itself, which divides a river and a large lake connected to the Thunder Mountain power plant. There are a number of guard posts and old defenses set up around the location's perimeter, including several can chimes. Entering the western maintenance building from the parking lot opens to the ground floor with various machinery and shelves inside. There is a small room here with variable loot, and the office connects to a bathroom. Above it is another office area with a terminal and grenades to be taken. Following the catwalk upwards leads out to the roof, where, at the very top, there is a corpse sitting on a throne next to an ammo box on another guard post.
The other building, a water control station, is poorly lit and has a few random weapons and a terminal. Walking along the top of the dam itself provides a view of the waterways, while also finding some junk items to loot.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Thanks Lenny - Holotape, on a desk in the main building, inside the first floor office.
- Big rig trailer key - On a corpse sitting in a throne on the roof of the maintenance building.
- Power armor chassis with raider power armor pieces - In the truck trailer beside the buildings with a level 2 lock (can also be opened with the big rig trailer key listed above).
- Two potential Vault-Tec bobbleheads:
- On the ground floor of the maintenance building, in the same room as the "Thanks Lenny" holotape, in a sink.
- In the upper section of the large pump room, in the mainframe computer room, on the concrete balcony with the sandbags.
- Two potential magazines:
- In the eastern building, near the door entrance, by the blue machinery on the ground floor of the pump chamber (southwest corner), on the second metal shelf.
- On the second floor of the maintenance building, in the corner of the concrete balcony on the north side of the upper area, close to the supervisor workstation, in a waste paper basket.
- Potential weapon mod - Inside the eastern building, on a crate to the right of the water control station terminal.
