Description Chapter 173-175 WAC, Dam Safety, defines how the State of Washington regulates dams. The rule defines the jurisdiction of the State over dams, and requires permits for construction of dams, sets terms for operation of dams in Washington and their inspection by the State, and describes agency enforcement powers and procedures for unsafe or illegal dams.
