  • Dam safety training for state personnel
  • Increase in the number of dam inspections
  • Increase in the submittal and testing of Emergency Action Plans
  • More timely review and issuance of permits
  • Improved coordination with state emergency preparedness officials
  • Identification of dams to be repaired or removed
  • Conduct dam safety awareness workshops and creation of dam safety videos and other outreach materials
