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.
