The failures of the Oroville Dam spillways in early 2017 aroused public awareness about dam safety. The Orange County Flood Control District (OCFCD) owns 16 dams, including the Villa Park Dam which has been classified as an extremely high hazard. On April 4, EWRI facilitated a presentation about the new mandates and, more specifically, the Villa Park Dam analysis.
