The Task Force has been evaluating recommendations made by the Association of State Dam Safety Officials (ASDSO) in the independent group's review of the state's Dam Safety Program under the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE). The Task Force assigned the ASDSO Peer Review Report recommendations to six workgroups: legislation and authority; compliance, enforcement and emergency response; permitting and design review; reevaluations, inspections and surveillance monitoring; program management/funding and budgeting; and outreach and awareness/safety and security at dams.
