The board approved the City of Astoria's Bear Creek Dam Emergency Action Plan. The plan, developed by the city with assistance from the county Emergency Management Division and Oregon Department of Water Resources, details the response measures and agency roles in the event of a breach or other failure at the city-owned dam , located approximately three miles south of Svensen.Emergency action plans are required for all dams designated by the state as high-risk, which is determined by the number of homes and businesses at risk from a dam failure, not from the condition of the structure.
