    Abstract This report looks at the safety of three non-operational
    old water dams; Birchville, Korokoro, and Woollen Mill,
    and assesses the dams conditions, their structural
    stability, the risk of failure, and the potential hazard should
    the dams fail.

    This report uses criteria set out in the New Zealand SOLD
    dam Safety Guidelines and the Building Act 2004 to assess
    the potential impact category for the dams.

    The report concludes that all three dams assessed have a low
    rating for failure in an an earthquake or other disaster.
