Major Modification Made to Dam Safety Rules
​New Dam Safety Rules
​Construction of dams requires a reservoir storage permit from the Department.  For dams that are 10 feet and over in height and store at least 9.2 acre feet of water, approved designs, drawings, and specifications are also required prior to construction.  These documents must be prepared by a qualified professional engineer registered in Oregon.
