Michigan Dam Safety Task Force

  • The MI Dam Safety Task Force will evaluate the statutory structure, budget, and program design of the Water Resources Division Dam Safety Program, the adequacy of Michigan’s dam safety standards, and the level of investment needed in Michigan’s dam infrastructure.  Its work will culminate in a report to Governor Whitmer and the legislature summarizing its findings and recommending regulatory, financial, and programmatic improvements to help ensure Michigan dams are appropriately maintained, operated, and overseen to protect Michigan residents and aquatic resources.
