Dams Sector-Specific Plan: An Annex to the National Infrastructure Protection Plan  [open pdf - 1MB]
"The National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) provides the unifying structure for the integration of critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) protection and resilience efforts as part of a coordinated national program. The NIPP provides the overarching framework for integrating protective programs and activities underway in the various sectors, as well as new and developing CIKR protection efforts. Sector-Specific Plans detail the application of the overall risk management framework to each of the 18 specific sectors. The Dams Sector-Specific Plan (DSSP) was developed to complement the NIPP in achieving a safer, more secure, and more resilient Dams Sector by reducing vulnerabilities, deterring threats, and minimizing the consequences of terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and other incidents. Each year, the Dams Sector CIKR Protection Annual Report provides detailed updates on the efforts conducted by sector partners to identify, prioritize, and coordinate the protection of the sector's critical infrastructure. The Sector Annual Report describes the current priorities of the sector as well as the progress made during the past year in following the plans and strategies set out in the DSSP. This 2010 release of the DSSP updates the original plan issued in May 2007. As with the original plan, this document was developed through active collaboration and coordination with Dams Sector partners. This plan, and the public-private partnership that it represents, supports the Nation's all-hazards approach to homeland security preparedness and domestic incident management."
