Cover photo for the document: Risk Prioritization Tool for Dams
The Risk Prioritization Tool for Dams is a standards-based decision-making tool for risk-based dam safety prioritization to be used by state dam safety regulators throughout the country to identify those dams within a large inventory that most urgently need attention and then allocate resources accordingly. Once priorities are judged, risk acceptance or tolerability is a matter of policy that will vary from state to state. The tool is quick and easy to implement; applicable to any type or number of dams; accommodates the broad differences between owners and information known about each dam; avoids subjectivity and unnecessary bias; and is defensible and reproducible. The tool requires very little disk space and will run on any computer that is currently running Microsoft Excel 2002 or newer. Before getting started, download and read the Users Manual. Section 2.2 explains installation and setup.
