DamWatch - Using new technology to keep dams safe

Local conservation districts and NRCS are using new technology to help monitor 12,000 dams across the nation that have been constructed with assistance from the NRCS Watershed program. These dams provide flood control to many communities and some of them provide water supplies for cities and irrigation and provide excellent recreation and fishing and boating. This technology is named DamWatch.
