SUMMARY AS PASSED SENATE: (all summaries)

Dam safety; regulation of impoundment structures. Allows the Director to provide financial assistance for the determination of the hazard classification for impounding structures, dam break analysis, the mapping and digitization of dam break inundation zones, incremental damage analysis, and other engineering requirements such as emergency action plan development. Dam owners whose impounding structure is not classified, or whose impounding structure is already classified but the owner believes that conditions indicate that the hazard potential classification should be reduced, may request that the Department conduct a simplified dam break inundation zone analysis to determine whether the impounding structure has a low hazard potential classification. Dam owners shall pay a fee not to exceed 50 percent of the costs for such services. If the Department finds that the impounding structure has a low hazard potential classification, the owner shall be eligible for coverage under a general permit.
