Dam Safety Administrative Rules Update


In July, 2022 the Dam Safety Program proposed several updates to the Administrative Rules of Dam Safety.  Our goal is to clarify existing rules, reduce red tape where possible, and provide increased flexibility for scheduling inspections around reservoir operation.  A hearing was held on August 9, 2022 with no opposition. The rule changes have hereby been adopted as proposed, effective September 24, 2022.  Comments received on the modifications and the Department's responses will be posted shortly.

If you are interested in plain talk reasoning behind the rules modifications, please refer to the following short video:
