Abstract : This document provides a bibliography and abstracts of selected publications relevant to emergency planning for dams (in the event of failure and large floods) and the preparation of evacuation plans. The abstracts provide an introduction to emergency planning for dams and illustrate a large number of considerations which enter into planning and the high level of technical sophistication required for dealing with some aspects. This information can assist planners in avoiding omission of important considerations in the preparation of such flood emergency plans. The abstracts and bibilography also provides assistance in identifying other publications of use in those studies. The abstracts include most of the references given in the Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety publication.
