Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The presence of a considerable number of aging dams requires a more clear-cut organization of monitoring their condition. For a start it is necessary to put such monitoring in order in the electric power sector with strengthening of centralized principles of supervision.

     
  2. 2.

    A centralized supervision system should have a state character and approach international standards. The existing experience and system of standards permit fulfilling this work in a short time.
