“He who Creates a potential danger is responsible for doing everything within human power to control it”
The function of a spillway can be best illustrated as emanating from above well-known legal argument. Impounding large quantity of water behind a dam creates the danger of a dam-break flood wave, which could have catastrophic consequences. The safe design of a dam to avoid such a danger includes a spillway, aptly described as the safety valve of the dam-reservoir system.
