Dams Sector Resources

Dams Sector reference documents and tools include both open source and those designated as “For Official Use Only” (FOUO). Resources available to stakeholders include handbooks, guides, brochures, fact sheets, and analytical tools.

HSIN-CI Dams Portal

This portal allows Dams Sector partners to effectively collect and distribute information to federal, state, and local agencies and the private sector. It provides access to templates, guidelines, and models to assist other owners and operators in developing plans addressing security, recovery, continuity of operations, cybersecurity, and exercises.

Dams Sector Consequence-Based Top Screen

This consequence-based method assists in identifying critical facilities within the Dams Sector. Critical facilities are highly important facilities, and their failure or disruption would have the highest possible effect compared to other sector assets.

Dams Sector Suspicious Activity Reporting Tool

This online tool was developed to provide Dams Sector partners with the ability to report and retrieve information on suspicious activities that could be a part of pre-incident surveillance.
