Dam Safety Committee

The Dam Safety Committee has a primary mandate to provide stewardship to CDA technical publications including the Dam Safety Guidelines and related technical bulletins. The committee identifies issues that are relevant and important to dams and dam safety in Canada with implications for dam owners, dam practitioners, regulators and the public. They also provide oversight to a number of working groups to fulfill more specific mandates. Currently, there are seven active working groups under the committee.
