DOD/COE RIN: 0710-AA85 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Design Criteria for Dam and Lake Projects 

The existing regulation provides the design criteria for low-level discharge facilities for drawdown of lakes to be impounded by Civil Works Projects and is applicable to all USACE Divisions and Districts having responsibility for design of Civil Works projects. This final rule will remove unnecessary and duplicative regulatory text relating to matters also found in Agency guidance. The Corps does not expect the change to have any substantive impact on the public, but removing the unnecessary regulatory text is expected to provide clarity and reduce confusion for the public. The guidance on which the Corps will rely in place of the regulatory text, and update as necessary, is Engineer Regulation 1110-2-240 and can be found at: This removal supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.
