Dam & Levee Safety Technical Working Group Gail Heath, Chair

Dam & Levee Safety Technical Working Group (part of the Data Collection Sub-Committee)

NEW! Online forum for Dam & Levee Safety TWG

The goal of the Dam and Levee Safety TWG is to promote the development of sound monitoring techniques and specific decision criteria implementation to provide the best detection, decision-making, and notification of an event at a dam or levee that would warrant warning and evacuation of the affected populace. Our implementation strategies include:

  • Education for dam and levee owners of the risk that their structures pose to the downstream and protected populations,
  • Promotion of the ideals of providing effective warnings through adequate detection and specific decision criteria implementation
  • Encouragement of dam and levee owners to interface with the local response officials and emergency managers through dam and levee Emergency Action Plan development and exercises
  • Technical support through shared experiences, resources, and reviews of consultant proposals,
  • Guideline development to provide documentation support for the dam and levee owners.
