DAMS MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT

CSR ACTIVITIES FOR 2014

 Dams Management Department (DMD),as part of its mandate, implemented a dam safety program in accordance to the 2013 version of the NPC Dam Safety Program (DSP).  The Program includes the recent international standards and practices on the ownership/operations/maintenance of large dams.  The DSP aims, not only maintaining the structural integrity of the NPC operated and maintained dams and their appurtenances for sustainable operation but also to ensure that communities immediately downstream of these structures will not be exposed to risks from their existence and operations. 

 Hence, DMD conducts public information and education campaign (PIEC) to impart and orient the communities on dam operations and their benefits.

 The campaign communicated the clear, complete and up-to-date information regarding NPC operated and maintained dams and their appurtenances and the assurance that NPC is committed to implement activities compliant to the DSP.

 This campaign, which is now a continual activity, opened the door towards better communication line between NPC and the downstream communities & other stakeholders, and helped strengthen the capacity of the Local Government Units (LGUs) to deal/cope with flood-related hazards.

 DMD has already conducted series of PIECs at the following downstream communities in 2014:
