Description

With an ever-increasing emphasis on dam safety, the need for trained examination and evaluation personnel at the Bureau of Reclamation is mandatory. This manual will provide professional personnel with a comprehensive guide to a program of dam safety examination and evaluation. Although most statements in this manual refer to organizational procedures and units within the Bureau, the principles, concepts, and general procedures are believed to be readily adaptable by any agency conducting a regulatory or in-house dam safety program for existing dams.

This manual provides a guide for use by professional personnel in performing safety evaluations of existing dams and appurtenant structures. The principles and concepts of examination and evaluation, causes of failures, and examples of adverse conditions are discussed.

The manual sets forth guidelines for:

  • Scope and frequency of examinations
  • Team selection and responsibilities
  • Preparing and updating Data Books
  • Reviewing design, construction, and operations
  • Making onsite examinations
  • Developing conclusions and recommendations
  • Preparing reports
Audience

This manual is intended to provide engineering and technical personnel at all levels of Government (Federal, State, and local) and private engineering organizations with sound, comprehensive guidelines and procedures for the examination and evaluation of public and private dams.
