Four New Dam Owner Academy Videos

Dam owners are solely responsible for the safety and the liability of the dam, so owners must be informed on all aspects of operating and maintaining a dam safely.

To make accessing guidance information easy, ASDSO has developed the Dam Owner Academy video series. The series is a free resource for owners and those conducting owner outreach programs, and each video concisely explores one critical aspect of ownership.

Visit ASDSO’s Youtube Channel or the dam owner webpage to view the videos and the supplemental fact sheets. Thank you to ASDSO’s Dam Owner Outreach Committee for leading the effort to develop this series.

In June 2023, ASDSO released four new entries into the series. The videos are:
