Picture of Dam Inspection in progress 

The Dam Safety section is responsible for the safety of all existing dams in the state of Colorado.  Dam Safety engineers regularly inspect jurisdictional dams throughout the state.

The Colorado Lake & Reservoir Management Association offered a Special Recognition Award to DWR's Dam Safety section for participating in the emergency dam inspections during the September 2013 floods.
