Dam Emergency Action Plans

The Emergency Action Plan (EAP) addresses the planned response to an actual or threatened extraordinary incident, disaster, or emergency associated with a Dam. The EAP defines response roles and responsibilities, provides incident detection and emergency notifications protocols, and provides procedures designed to identify unusual and unlikely conditions that may endanger the Dam in time to take mitigative action and to notify the appropriate emergency management authorities of possible, impending, or actual failure of the Dam. This EAP may also be used to provide notification when flood releases can create major flooding.
