Water control facilities include dams, levees, dikes and other structures designed to control the natural flow or impoundment of water. These water control facilities are source of hydroelectric power generation, municipal and industrial water supply, agricultural irrigation, flood control, river navigation, industrial waste management, and recreation. Water control facility owners are required to maintain these assets as well as maintain a safety and preparedness program that routinely plans, trains, and exercises. The Federal Emergency Management Agency oversees levee certification and the National Dam Safety Program.
