Workshops on Proposed Amendments to Dam Regulations

Posted: Updated:
From the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources:

The Nevada Division of Water Resources (DWR) is proposing amendments to dam and dam safety under Chapter 535 of the Nevada Administrative Code.

Two workshops to solicit comments from interested persons are scheduled.

Carson City, Tuesday, July 8, 2014, 10:00 a.m.
Bryan Building. 2nd floor, Tahoe Room, 901 S. Stewart Street, Carson City, NV 89701

Las Vegas, Thursday, July 10, 10:00 a.m.

DWR Branch Office, 400 Shadow Lane, Suite 201, Las Vegas, NV 89106

Proposed amendments to the regulations include the addition of environmental loss as a factor in determining hazard classification and a requirement for a dam owner to maintain operating manuals and activity logs at all dams; inclusion of a hazard classification report in the application for approval of plans and specifications; clarification of requirements for notification of construction, reconstruction or alteration of a dam; revisions to conditions for abandonment of a dam or closure of file associated with a decommissioned dam and the revision of language pertaining to storm water detention dams to reflect changes to Nevada revised statutes in 2013.

A copy of all materials relating to the proposal may be obtained at the workshop or online at water.nv.gov. Written comments may be provided to the DWR by 5:00 p.m., July 14, 2014.
