SECTION 6465-6467



6465.  Any dam or reservoir that falls within the definition of a
dam or reservoir in this part by virtue of the amendment of Section
6002 or the addition of Section 6004.5 at the 1965 Regular Session of
the Legislature and which the department finds was under
construction and not 90 percent constructed on September 17, 1965,
shall, except as provided in Section 6466, be subject to the same
provisions in this part as a dam or reservoir commenced after that
date. Every owner of such a dam or reservoir shall file an
application with the department for the department's written approval
of the plans and specifications of the dam or reservoir. Where an
application for approval of the plans and specifications for a dam is
pending before the department on September 17, 1965, such
application shall be deemed to also constitute an application for
approval of the plans and specifications of the reservoir which will
contain the water impounded by the dam.


6466.  Construction work on such a dam or reservoir may proceed,
provided an application for approval of the plans and specifications
therefor is filed, until a certificate of approval is received by the
owner from the department approving the dam or reservoir or an order
is received by the owner from the department specifying how the
construction must be performed to render the dam or reservoir safe.
After receipt of an order specifying how construction of the dam or
reservoir must be performed, work thereafter must be in accordance
with the order.


6467.  Such dams or reservoirs as are 90 percent or more constructed
on September 17, 1965, shall be subject to the same supervision as
dams or reservoirs which were completed prior thereto.
