Some example D'Appolonia projects involving preparation of Emergency Action Plans for dams are provided in the following:
Safety Inspection and EAP Preparation for Seven Dams in Pennsylvania
D’Appolonia was retained by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) Bureau of Waterways Engineering to perform field inspections and to prepare Emergency Action Plans for seven earth embankment and concrete-gravity dams located in several Pennsylvania counties. The scope of work included development of the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) for each dam and routing the flood associated with a postulated dam breach through downstream channels. EAP documents were prepared and distributed to the EAP participants.
Safety Inspection and EAP Preparation for Six Dams
D’Appolonia was retained by the Mercer County (Pennsylvania) Conservation District (MCCD) to perform field inspections and to prepare Emergency Action Plans for six earth embankment dams located in rural Mercer County. The EAPs were prepared consistent with PADEP requirements and copies were distributed to EAP participants.
