In 2004, a geomembrane liner was installed inside the reservoir to control the leakage within the dike that resulted from cracks in the thin layer of shotcrete caused by differential settlement the dike had experienced during its 40 years of operation. First, the system programming was altered to report the water level within the reservoir lower than the instrument’s actual readings, in order to avoid the false positive measurements that the pressure transducers were reporting. As a result, the pressure transducers’ ability to report accurate water levels was hindered, and lower water levels were being recorded than actually existed. Next article Malfunction – Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant. “The tenth anniversary of the Taum Sauk dam failure serves as a reminder of the very real need for constant vigilance in dam safety,” said Lori Spragens, Executive Director of the Association of State Dam Safety Officials.

The failure at Taum Sauk and the associated forensic investigation has added greatly to the profession’s understanding of how dams behave and fail. (2010). On December 14, 2005, near the end of the morning pumping cycle, both the primary reservoir sensors and the “fail safe” Warrick probes failed to report the critical high water level in the reservoir because the probes had been incorrectly set at a higher elevation than the low point on the parapet. the Taum Sauk Dam Upper Reservoir failed, discharging one billion gallons of water in just twelve minutes. This was further compounded by system programming that required both probes to trip the pumps off-line.

Because no spillway system was incorporated into the original design, the dike was equipped with two float type actuator systems as primary and secondary pump shutdown systems to stop the facilities’ two pumps should the water in the reservoir exceed the desired level. Among the contributing factors, improperly installed reservoir sensors inaccurately read the reservoir elevation, allowing water to continue to be pumped into the reservoir after it was full.
