The National Dam Safety Program Research Needs Workshop: Spillway Gates
One of the outcomes of the Folsom tainter gate
failure was the recognition of the need to revisit the
issues related to gate performance and safety. This
workshop report documents lessons learned from
the Folsom tainter gate failure and applies those
lessons across the broad spectrum of spillway gates.
The report provides recommendations for future
action and serves as a reference for regulatory
agencies as they refine their requirements in this area.
