This program investigates citizen complaints relating to, and performs compliance monitoring inspections of, dams whose failure could cause loss of life or significant property damage.

ASDSO Dam Owner Academy

The Dam Owner Academy is a series of videos to educate and inform owners on all aspects of operating and maintaining a dam safely. The videos concisely present the critical basics of owner responsibilities and are available as a free resource for owners and those conducting owner outreach programs. Over the next few years, the Association of State Dam Safety Officials (ASDSO) will release additional videos and tools as part of the Dam Owner Academy. For future videos, make sure to subscribe to ASDSO's Youtube Channel and check DamOwner.org.

Report an Environmental Complaint
