Criteria for Selecting Proposals
The relative probability of dam failure (risk-of-failure) is determined from the technical factors used in the SEED report to determine placement on the Department of the Interior's Technical Priority Rating List. This priority list is then used to prioritize budget requests for repair of the Bureau's most unsafe dams. Approximately $22,000,000 of the funds for the Safety of Dams program are distributed in accordance with the Technical Priority Rating listing for Department of the Interior dams.
“TEO” and co-founder of Honest Tea, Seth Goldman, talks about living in a shade of grey – businesses wouldn’t exist without its consumers. As he said, “There are current issues we deal with, and even if we solve one of those issues, we should be moving on to the next one. As long as we are a consumer-based economy, there’s no way around it. No way to totally lose that area of grey.”
