    The majority of high hazard potential dams are regularly inspected and have emergency action plans (EAPs) in place. Eighty seven percent of state-regulated high hazard dams have an EAP. However, smaller structures, which account for the vast majority in the inventory, are subject to fewer inspections and rarely have EAPs. During the crisis, emergency evacuation was delayed because the inundation map and Emergency Action Plan (EAP) on file did not address the potential failure of the emergency spillway. The Oroville Dam spillway failure has exposed the need for updated emergency preparation across the state and elsewhere in the country.
