National Dam Safety Awareness Day is May 31

National Dam Safety Awareness DayNational Dam Safety Awareness Day occurs each year on May 31 and serves to promote individual and community responsibility and best practices for dam safety, and what steps people can take to either prevent future catastrophic dam failures or lessen the impact if a failure was to occur.

National Dam Safety Awareness Day commemorates the failure of the South Fork Dam in Johnstown, Pennsylvania on May 31, 1889. The Johnstown disaster was the worst dam failure in the history of the United States with more than 2,200 lives lost.
