Dam operators urged to prepare for storms

August 9, 2013

Owners and operators of reservoirs across South Carolina should check their dams immediately and during the next several days for possible problems caused by heavy rainfall. “Owners who have the ability to lower their reservoir’s water level should safely do so to provide additional storage for the anticipated rainfall,” said John Poole with DHEC’s dam safety program. “If there is a dam downstream of your dam and you are lowering actions. Before and after the storm has passed, any accumulated trash and debris should be cleared from spillways.”
