C. 20314. The purpose of a Phase I investigation is to identify expeditiously those dams which may pose hazards to human life or property. The assessment of the general conditions of the dam is based upon available data and visual inspections. Detailed investigation and analyses involving topographic mapping, subsurface investigations, testing, and detailed computational evaluations are beyond the scope of a Phase I investigation however, the investigation is intended to identify any need for such studies. Phase I reports include project information of the dam and appurtenances, all existing engineering data, operational procedures, hydraulichydrologic data of the watershed, dam stability, visual inspection report and an assessment including required remedial measures.
