DEP Staff Provide Update On Dam Safety Regulations To Dam Owners In 2 Counties

Department of Environmental Protection Dam Safety staff recently met with owners of private dams in Bradford and Wyoming counties to discuss the updates to regulations regarding dams.  
Dam Safety staff spent most of the day April 19 talking to owners of three dams about new specifications for height of dams, spillway pressure and bonding to own and maintain a dam in Pennsylvania.
DEP's Roger Adams and Kirk Kreider, along with Rep. Karen Boback of Wyoming County, talked with members of the Chamberlain Lake Property Owners Association.  
The members of the 50-acre lake are considering applying for a grant to get the necessary funding to rehabilitate the existing dam on the lake and perform required maintenance.
For more information on the program, visit DEP’s Dam Safety webpage.
