Description

Dam safety regulatory requirements are established based on the consequence classification of the structures and/or risks or hazards posed by the structures. Dam safety uses five classifications for dams based on evaluation of the potential downstream consequences of failure in terms of three categories, namely: loss of life; environment and cultural values; and infrastructure and economics, similar to dam classification ratings suggested by the Canadian Dam Association.
