Thousands of run-down US dams would kill people if they failed, study finds

The problem will only become more serious as the climate crisis disrupts rain patterns, experts warn.

“Unfortunately, some state programs don’t have the resources they need to follow through,” Ogden said.

In total, there are more than 91,000 dams in the US, according to the National Inventory of Dams, a project of the US army corps of engineers.

Ogden said repairing dams and preparing emergency plans will become even more important with more frequent intense rainfall.

If the ground is already saturated with rain before a heavy downpour, a dam could overtop or even burst.
