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.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 1225.)

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.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 1225.)

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.
