The FEMA National Dam Safety Program worked with the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) to develop three Independent Study courses based on FEMA P-1032 - Evaluation of Monitoring of Seepage and Internal Erosion. The courses provide dam owners, emergency response personnel and other stakeholders with the knowledge and tools to identify seepage and internal erosion within dams.
IS-0874 - Introduction to Seepage and Internal Erosion and the Emergency Response to Seepage Related Dam Risks, provides a basic level introduction to the concepts and implications of seepage and internal erosion and builds a foundation for private dam owners, local, state, tribal and territorial officials to understand seepage related dam risks.
IS-0875 - Identifying, Monitoring, and Addressing Seepage and Internal Erosion at Dams, provides a basic level introduction to identify, monitor and address seepage and internal erosions at dams.
IS-0876 - Evaluation and Analysis of Internal Erosion and Seepage Conditions at Dams, builds competency in the investigation and analysis of seepage and internal erosion at dams. It also provides a foundation for local emergency officials and engineers on seepage conditions as they pertain to risk-based systems.
The courses do not grant a FEMA Dam Safety certificate.
