Emergency Action Plan Updates

Emergency Action Plan Updates

Under our A/E Design Services contract with the Bureau of Indian Affairs Division of Water and Power, Akana engineers are providing technical assistance and support to revise and exercise Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) s for 17 dams owned by Tribes in Arizona, New Mexico, and Montana.  Services have ranged from complete revision of an existing EAP, to updating and exercising the EAP with a Tabletop or Functional, and in some cases providing inundation mapping and related services.

  • San Carlos Reservation Dams EPA Updates – Updating existing EAPs to new format and conducting a HSEEP compliant exercise. Inundation mapping data collection and review will be conducted for the Dry Lake, Upper Point of Pines, Point of Pines, Tufa Stone and Elgo Dam structures.
  • Task B: Charley Dam EAP – Though Charley Dam is technically breached, it is still in the BIA’s inventory. Based on modifications made to the spillway, downstream channel alternatives must be evaluated. Selecting a new downstream channel configuration will aid in the FPC and exercise. Channel alternatives will focus on restoring the channel to a natural streambed and channel alignment.
  • Task C: Flathead Reservation EAP Updates – The existing Flathead EAPs will be reformatted in the new BIA SOD format. Updated EAPs will aid BIA SOD in evaluating specific needs.
