INTRODUCTION

Hydro Power is our richest renewable and environmentally benign source of energy. Hydro power stations have the unique capabilities to manage the load variations which helps in improving the reliability of the power system as they have the inherent ability for instantaneous starting and stopping. The hydro power so far developed in our country in only 44,653 mw as against the ultimate hydro power installing potential of 1,48,700 mw. Earlier, hydro power development was the activity of Government (Central or State) only. Private sector players are also coming forward in sharing the responsibility of hydro power development along with central and state governments in view of the liberal provisions of the new hydro power policy. Every effort is to be made for creating the balance hyderal power potential to meet the fast growing needs of our country.

INTRODUCTION

About 4800 large dams spending enormous amounts have been constructed across the country since independence. In addition to these dams, there were also about 300 large dams constructed prior to independence era. By and large all these dams are performing well, except very few failures. The dams which were constructed long back with the data, design and construction technologies available at that time are to be reviewed in view of the changes in the hydrological inputs, latest design parameters and other technological advancements in terms of Dam Safety Bill 2010 and necessary steps are to be taken to sustain the safety of the dams. However, the Engineers in-charge of the dams should also develop emergency action plans for the dams under their control and implement the same as the situation demands in case of failure. The Dam Safety Bill clearly indicated the institutional mechanism at Central and State level detailing their duties and functions to be discharged by them including the obligation for emergency action plan and disaster management. The dam safety procedures as well as preparation and implementation of emergency action plan should be reviewed periodically and suitably updated based on the latest data and technological advancement including situation demands. The most important activities associated with dam safety are operation & maintenance, regular inspections, proper surveillance and immediate follow up action on the suggestions and recommendations of the inspecting team. Prevention of failures is always appreciated which saves the community from loss of human life, livestock as well as property in addition to intangible grief and distress.
