National Dam Safety Review Board and Interagency Committee on Dam Safety

To encourage and promote dam safety nationally, FEMA coordinates with federal, state, and private sector partners through two advisory committees, the National Dam Safety Review Board (NDSRB) and the Interagency Committee on Dam Safety (ICODS). ICODS is comprised of representatives from several federal agencies having an involvement with dams and serves as the permanent forum for the coordination of federal activities in dam safety and security. The NDSRB, comprised of federal, state and private sector partners, advises FEMA’s Administrator in setting national dam safety priorities and considers the effects of national policy issues affecting dam safety. The NDSRB also helps monitor performance of state dam safety programs. For more information, visit National Dam Safety Review Board and Interagency Committee on Dam Safety.
