Dam Safety Program

The objective of the Corps’ Dam Safety Program is to maintain public safety, make Corps dams safer and minimize risks. Since 2007, the Corps has used a risk-informed process to prioritize addressing dam safety deficiencies on a nationwide basis. What’s new is how we assess our dams and are incorporating risk management concepts into dam safety management, routine activities and programming decisions.
