Abstract

This report describes a methodology to conduct a preliminary, risk-based analysis of existing dams. The report provides a methodology to conduct simplified risk and engineering analyses of dams as part of a preliminary safety evaluation. The screening process was developed as an aid to dam safety managers concerned with weighing the risks associated with the dams in their jurisdiction and the constraints of limited fiscal resources.
