§ 335.8. Technical Memorandum.
(a) A technical memorandum shall be prepared for each dam system to document the modeling used to develop inundation maps. The technical memorandum shall include the following:
(1) Name and location of the dam and critical appurtenant structures.
(2) Description of the dam, including the materials and methods of construction and a description of each critical appurtenant structure. Identify elevations of the crest, upstream, and downstream toes. Provide a description of the outlet(s), including capacity. Provide justification for appurtenances that are not considered critical appurtenant structures by the dam owner.
(3) Reservoir storage capacity curve that shows the relationship between reservoir elevation and volume from the base of the reservoir to the dam crest. Elevation shall be specified as feet above NAVD88.
(4) Brief summary of the following:
(A) Modeled failure scenario(s) for the dam system, including the scenario described in section 335.6(a)(5), if applicable. For each failure scenario, include the breach hydrograph immediately downstream of the dam or critical appurtenant structure in tabular and graphical formats.
(B) Modeling software:
1. Name
2. Reasons for its use
3. Version
4. Release date
(C) Modeling assumptions of the meteorological loading condition, type of reservoir routing, downstream roughness or other friction coefficients, and initial conditions of downstream watercourses.
(D) Breach parameters for each failure scenario submitted in tabular format. Provide an explanation for breach parameter selection.
(E) Type of terrain data used, including any modifications made to the terrain.
(F) Any sensitivity analyses of the model, including the model's response to changes made to the roughness or other friction coefficients.
(G) Modifications made to stabilize the model or accelerate its computational runtime, if applicable, and the effects such modifications have on the modeled inundation results.
(H) Determination of the inundation boundary per section 335.10(c).
(5) The signature, seal, and license number of the California-licensed professional civil engineer responsible for preparing the technical memorandum.
