Report Card for Pennsylvania's Infrastructure Featured Category - Dams
Estimates show that $1.1 billion is needed to repair deficient and unsafe dams in Pennsylvania.
There are 3,380 state-regulated dams in Pennsylvania that provide for the drinking water, irrigation, flood control, hydropower, recreation and industrial water needs of the state. While dams provide many needed services, if they are not properly invested in and maintained, they can pose a risk to life and property within the state. This is particularly true of high hazard potential dams; should these fail, there is probable loss of human life and substantial property damage. There are 803 high hazard potential dams in Pennsylvania, 743 of which are state-regulated. Of the state-regulated high hazard dams, 44% are considered deficient, a reduction from the 67% in 2014. While this is encouraging, approximately 33% of the deficient dams are still considered unsafe, meaning they do not meet current Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection standards. Estimates show that $1.1 billion is needed to repair deficient and unsafe dams in Pennsylvania.
