Document Number: E9-18091
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-07-29
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The NPS is proposing to adopt a DO setting forth the policies and procedures under which NPS will develop and implement the Dam Safety Program. The NPS maintains an inventory of NPS owned and non-NPS owned dams that range greatly in size, complexity and potential for failure. This DO summarizes the NPS's policies and procedures for meeting Federal requirements as codified at 33 U.S.C. 467 and as required per Departmental Manual 245 and 753 and NPS Management Policies 2006. The DO will help ensure that all necessary actions are taken to identify NPS owned and non-NPS owned dams which impact parks, and inspect, operate, maintain, and reduce risk for NPS owned dams.
