Taiwan has numerous reservoirs. Every five years, a Dam Safety Assessment Report is required for each. To ensure the thoroughness and accuracy of the reports, the Water Resources Agency Ministry (W.R.A.M.) sponsors a consultation of each preliminary Safety Assessment Report, which is completed by the National Hazard Mitigation Research Center (N.H.M.R.C.). The N.H.M.R.C. holds a technical convention and the results of each consultation are sent to the Reservoir Safety Assessment Council of the Water Resources Agency.
The inspection of Dam Safety depends on extensive professional knowledge. Accordingly, the N.H.M.R.C. has compiled teaching materials for Dam Safety Assessment. These materials are used to conduct technical training and consultations with the inspectors and conservatorsof Reservoir Safety.
The working items are as follows.
