Proposed regulations for dam safety - Consultation

Abbreviation
Dam safety
Valid from
11/06/2019

Information provider
Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment
Information type
Section 175 guidance
Format
HTML, PDF, Word

Description

These regulations propose to establish a nationally consistent approach that will protect people, property and the environment from the potential impact of a large dam’s failure without imposing undue compliance costs.

The proposed new scheme pulls together post-construction regulatory requirements into a single, consistent nationwide framework. The owners of dams will be responsible for ensuring that their dams are being managed appropriately, proportionate to the risk they pose.

The proposals aim to ensure that classifiable dams are well maintained and regularly monitored, and that potential risks of dam failure are reduced.

The scheme also recognises that the dam safety requirements need to be regularly reviewed because the consequences of dam failure can change over time due to factors such as site conditions, urban development or population growth.
