Dam Safety Reviews in British Columbia

Description:A Dam Safety Review (DSR) has been a common practice used by Dam Owners to review the Dam and its owner’s practices to identify deficiencies and non-conformances with an ultimate goal of determining if a dam is ‘safe’. This practice became a requirement under the Province of British Columbia Water Act Dam Safety Regulation in 2003. The regulation presents a frequency depending on the consequence classification but all dams must have gone through at least one in the last 10 years. This presentation will aid Dam Owners understand the requirements, expectations, issues, available tools, and the future direction of DSRs in BC.
