No approval is required to fix a leak in a dam as long as the following items are complied with:
- No fill is brought onto the site outside of the maximum amount permitted without an approval (see next question).
- The material to fix the dam is gathered from the site the dam is located on.
- The repair works must not increase the dam capacity.
Note: Many dams have been constructed with the materials available on the site. As such these dams have existing material on the site that can be used to fix a leak, broken wall, etc. It is recommended you speak to the duty planner to confirm the proposed works require no approval.
