  3. Pre-Event Dam Inspections

    In case a significant storm event is forecast, the Dam Operator representative will send out 2 qualified technical representatives/inspectors to each dam to monitor the dam performance during the storm event and to advise the Dam Operator should an emergency occur. They will constantly monitor the water surface elevation and report back to Dam Operator.
