"In June 1979, the ad hoc interagency committee on dam safety (ICODS) issued the first guidelines for federal agency dam owners (Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) 93).To supplement the Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety, ICODS has prepared and approved federal guidelines in the areas of emergency action planning; earthquake analyses and design of dams; selecting and accommodating inflow design floods for dams; and hazard potential classification system for dams. ICODS also has published a glossary of terms to accompany the guidelines."
