Dam owners reminded to begin planning risk reports
Dams Safety NSW emailed all declared dam owners on 7 July 2021, to remind them they are required to produce a risk report for their dam at least once every five years.
Under clause 15 of the Dams Safety Regulation 2019, declared dam owners are required to use the Dams Safety Regulation 2019 risk management framework to produce a written report on all foreseeable risks to their dam at least once every five years.
Dams Safety NSW prepared a risk report ‘due date schedule’ for all NSW declared dams which was also emailed to all dam owners. The risk report due dates cover a five-year period from December 2022 to December 2026, to spread the demand for competent industry specialists over that period, and to allow dam owners to factor the risk reports into their planning.
