Dam Safety Awareness Day

Dam Safety Awareness Day is dedicated to highlighting the importance of dam safety and the inherent risks posed by these structures. It stands as a reminder of the lives lost and communities affected by dam-related incidents.

Risk informed decision making for dam safety continues to evolve and is considered best practice for dam owners to prioritize resources to better understand and reduce risks to the public.

Schnabel joins Association of State Dam Safety Officials (ASDSO), United States Society on Dams (USSD), and the entire dam safety community in observance of this day, which should be a call to action, urging vigilance, preparedness, and concerted efforts to safeguard against the devastating consequences of dam failures.
