Best Practices for Inspection, Maintenance and Repair of Small to Medium Size Dams

Prevent loss of life and/or property damage, and preserve benefits by understanding the components of dams and how to inspect dams to identify potential problems.

Dams provide many benefits, such as water supply, flood control and recreation. Like all infrastructure systems, dams require upkeep. Without the proper inspection, maintenance and repair the benefits provided by a dam can be diminished; or in the worst case a dam can fail, resulting in loss of life and/or property damage. With proper maintenance and repair dams can function well and safely for many decades. This topic will provide an understanding of the components of dams, how to inspect dams to identify potential problems and how to address those problems through maintenance and repair. This information will allow you to develop or participate effectively in the inspection and maintenance programs for dams.
