Dam Safety Investigation and Design

ln the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Army Corps of Engineers prepared Phase I lnspection Reports for the existing dams throughout New Jersey in accordance with the Dam lnspection Act, Public Law 92-367.

These reports, prepared under the National Dam Safety Program, contained recommendations for remedial repairs and further hydrologic and hydraulic studies for each of the existing dams inspected.

The responsibility for the implementation of these recommendations was transferred to the NJDEP-Dam Safety Section.
