Modifications to the Dam Safety Regulation


Projected amendments to the Dam Safety Regulation have been published. The amendments propose to extend the statutory time limits for the performance of safety reviews by the owners of dams. The extended time limits only apply to dams whose failure consequence category is low. The proposed regulatory amendments also correct wordings that posed difficulties with respect to the determination of safety check flood as well as the application of earthquake resistance standards.
