The District of Summerland requires a Qualified Professional to perform Dam Safety Reviews, including Flood Inundation and Consequence Classifications. In addition, updates are required in the Dam Operation, Maintenance and Surveillance Manual and the Dam Emergency Plans.

A dam safety review involves a systematic review and evaluation of all aspects of the design, construction, operation, maintenance, processes and systems affecting a dam’s safety, including the dam safety management systems. The evaluation of the safety of the dam systems for the dam safety review must use the current knowledge and standards for dam engineering. The Qualified Professional should carry out the noted work in sufficient detail that the conclusions reached and recommendations arising out of the reviews can be made with the necessary degree of confidence.

The DSRs must meet the requirements of the BC Dam Safety Regulation and follow the APEGBC Professional Practice Guidelines for Legislated Dam Safety Reviews in BC. The Qualified Professional should utilize the Canadian Dam Association Dam Safety Guidelines (revised 2013 or the latest version) as the principle source of standard engineering practice for dam safety. Provincial legislation requires that DSRs be carried out by a Professional Engineer qualified in dam safety analysis (a Qualified Professional as per Section 2.2.2 of the APEGBC DSR Professional Practice Guidelines for Dam Safety Reviews). The legislation also requires that the Qualified Professional conclude the DSRs by providing their professional opinion regarding the safety of the dams.
