From our friends at ASDSO, stay safe/keep them safe out there!
Today is National Dam Safety Awareness Day.
On May 31st we remember the lessons learned from past dam failures, push for strong dam safety programs and advocate for investment in America's critical infrastructure.
National Dam Safety Awareness Day commemorates the South Fork Dam failure that occurred in 1889, in Johnstown, PA. The issue of dam safety was not widely recognized when the failure claimed more than 2,200 lives. As we observe the anniversary of this tragedy, we encourage others to know the benefits of dams, know the risk, and know their role. Dam safety is a shared responsibility.
ASDSO would like to thank you for all the work you do to promote dam safety. Your efforts help keep America's dams safe, operational and resilient.
