Inspection Service For Nation's Dams Right Move State Conservationist Feels The recent funding by the Congress of an inspection ser- vice for the nation's dams is a step in the right direction, ac- cording to State Conservationist Craig M. Right of the U.S. Dept. Of Agriculture's Soil Con- servation Service. SCS. "Properly designed and constructed dams are among the safest structures that man builds", Right said. "However. we know that inspections and adequate maintenance are necessary for any type of man made structure if it is to function properly". He pointed out that SCS has always required at least annual inspections of all the 137 darns it has constructed in West Virginia. Those are among the 197 dams SCS has planned in 32 upstream watersheds. All The dams are built primarily for flood prevention, but sometimes with additional storage of water for other purposes such as recreation and water supplies. "Complete records are kept of each inspection of an SCS dam", Right said, "and a follow-up is made to insure that all main- tenance items have been carried out. The annual inspection and maintenance of each dam is covered by a long-term agreement of I00 years between the SCS and soil codservation districts or other watershed sponsors". He added, "All necessary steps are taken, and will con- tinue to be taken, to insure that all 137 watershed dams are adequately maintained and do nat become safety hazards". designs and construction are The inspection and main- done according to stringent tenance program also makes it standards and specifications/ possible for projects II TI to provide maximum benefits to communities, he said. They assure, for example, that lakes continue to have the maximum capacity possible to retard floodwaters and thereby prevent flooding downstream. Right listed the following benefits from the 32 West Virginia upstream watershed projects: Flood protection to 35,100 acres of flood plains; average annual benefits of $3.9 million in flood damage reduction and $3.5 million in other benefits; the prevention of an estimated 47 million tons of sediment from entering streams and rivers, and the providing of adequate, dependable, high- quality water supplies to 10 communities with a combined population of 55,000. SCS will work with the W. Va. Dept. of Natural Resources, DNR, in the inspection of dams as requested, Right said. "As in the past, SCS stands ready to assist in any way it can with the inspections", he said. He "pointed Out that SCS technicians participated with DNR and the Army.
