CISA Can Improve Efforts to Ensure Dam Security and Resilience

Nationwide, there are more than 91,000 dams, levees, and other water retention structures protecting homes and businesses, delivering electricity, and providing recreation and transportation. Recent dam failures in Oroville, CA, and Midland, MI, and widespread flooding in the Midwest highlight a need for comprehensive Federal oversight and guidance.

In 2018, CISA became the newly formed DHS component responsible for Dams Sector security and resilience. Our audit objective was to determine to what extent CISA’s oversight has improved Dams Sector security and resilience.
