Dam Safety

In Queensland if a dam is classified as "referrable", then it is the dam owners responsibility to ensure the dam's safety. A referrable dam is defined as one that would, in the event of failure, put two or more persons at risk.

In New South Wales "prescribed" dams are those listed in Schedule 1 of the Dams Safety Act 1978. The Dams Safety Committee can require owners of prescribed dams to take action to ensure the safety of their dams.
