Importance of Journalism 

All Americans benefit from dams and need to understand the risks associated with potential incidents and failures.

ASDSO members are experts dedicated to ensuring the safety and security of the nation's more than 90,000 dams, but everyone has a role to play in this effort.

The role of journalists is essential to raising public awareness of dams and dam safety. An informed public can help prevent loss of life and property from dam failures.
