DEC Lowers Hazard Classification for Hawkinsville Dam-4/30/2014

By Carrie Zelazowski

Earlier this month, the New York State Department of Conservation (DEC) announced it is lowering the hazard classification of the Hawkinsville Dam. The DEC’s Division of Water, Bureau of Flood Protection and Dam Safety has changed the status of the dam to a Class A hazard (a low hazard structure) from a Class B hazard, which means the dam is safer than initially thought.
But the reclassification does not change the fact that the current Hawkinsville Dam is not compliant with DEC dam safety regulations. The decision on whether to remove or remediate that dam is still up to the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District, the agency that oversees the dam. The new hazard rating, however, may help the case to remediate the dam rather than remove it.
