National Dam Safety Program: Dam Safety in the U.S.
As lead Federal agency for the National Dam Safety Program, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is responsible for coordinating efforts to secure the safety of dams throughout the United States. Congress’ passage of the Dam Safety and Security Act of 2002 reauthorized the program for a four-year period. The program makes Federal funds available to the States, which are primarily responsible for protecting the public from dam failures of non-Federal dams, and pursuing initiatives that enhance the safety and security of dams posing the greatest risk to people and property.
