Description This is Part 4 of a 4 part series of publications on Dam Safety. See "Related Publications" below to view parts 1, 2, and 3.

Engineering design guidelines address frequently encountered engineering issues as they affect a broad range of project types. The principal focus of this document is the earthen dam of small to intermediate size, which represents the majority of the projects constructed in Washington state.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
