Introduction to Dam Safety

Dam Safety can be used to routinely inspect dams to ensure the dams they regulate are in good condition and provide the service for which they were intended.

It provides dam safety programs the necessary resources to adequately inspect and monitor their inventories. This standardized approach minimizes failure risk and improves safety of this critical infrastructure used for flood protection, water supply, hydropower, irrigation, and recreation. Dam Safety is typically implemented by natural resource departments and other government agencies that want to modernize their dam inspection programs.

The Dam Safety solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you routinely inspect dams, manage fieldwork assignments, and monitor inspection programs.
