Title: ●Requirements for the Design, Construction, Operation, Maintenance, and Inspection of Mine Impoundments and Dams 

The Mine Safety and Health Administration is proposing to create uniform standards for both metal and nonmetal and coal mines, to the extent appropriate, concerning impoundment and dam design, construction, operation, maintenance, and inspection based on technological and other advances made over the recent decades.  Miners, mine operators, and the general public would benefit from this rulemaking since failure of impoundments and dams is a significant hazard for the safety and health of miners and the surrounding communities.
