01/2015—Dr. Bruce Tschantz (with ISSE's TNWRRC) was invited to Washington, D.C. by Homeland Security and FEMA to present a historical perspective on the development of the 1979 Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety to the Joint Meeting of the Interagency Committee on Dam Safety (ICODS) and the National Dam Safety Review Board (NDSRB) held January 21, 2015. Tschantz, who coordinated federal and nonfederal dam safety policy and program efforts for the Carter Administration from 1977-80 following the 1976 failure of Teton Dam, challenged the federal agencies to consider several contemporary dam safety issues, including hydrofracturing effects, cyber terrorism/hacking, public safety around dams, coal combustion residual (CCR) impoundments, and risk-informed decision making (RIDM), as the Joint Committee begins to update the Guidelines that President Carter, in October 1979, directed 22 federal agencies to adopt and implement.
