The Small Embankment Dam Outlet Works Rehabilitation Guide uses short stories and photos to illustrate considerations that dam owners, engineers and regulators must take into account when outlet rehabilitation is on the horizon. This online guide highlights past experiences and lessons learned from others. It is divided into six categories of actions typical of small dam outlet rehabilitation projects:

Existing Conditions
Rehab or Replace?
Outlet Configuration
Filters & Drains
Energy Dissipation
Construction Considerations.

The guide was funded with National Dam Safety Program Assistance Grants funds administered through FEMA. The states of Montana, Oregon, North Dakota, Wyoming, Wisconsin and Maryland provided materials and review.
