Emergency Action Plan (EAP)

In order to protect life and property, the owner of every high hazard potential dam shall develop and periodically test and update an emergency action plan to be implemented in the event of an emergency involving such dam. The owner of any significant hazard potential dam may also be required to develop and periodically test and update an emergency action plan if determined necessary by the Department.

For purposes of evaluating the adequacy of an emergency action plan, the Department shall review, evaluate for adequacy, and approve or disapprove each emergency action plan submitted. All non-federal emergency action plans submitted after July 1, 2009 shall be in the same format as the fillable EAP template which can be downloaded below.
