MSHA is now updating the Design Manual to reflect what has been
learned about dam safety and coal-waste disposal. The purpose of the new manual is to provide
updated technical information to the industry on the design,
construction and maintenance of safe dams at coal mining operations.
An advance, draft copy of the updated manual is being posted on MSHA''s
web site to provide interested parties with the opportunity to review
it and provide MSHA with comments.
Comments and suggestions should be sent to John Fredland, Dam Safety
Officer, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via regular mail at
the following address:
