The Louisville District has a comprehensive monitoring and inspection program to keep its dams safe from failure. A dam failure means a sudden, uncontrolled release of water. Uncontrolled water an be a life threatening and destructive force, so the Corps of Engineers and the Louisville District strive to design, construct, maintain and operate safe dams.
