Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. The term PMF has been adopted by the Bureau which brings us in line with terminology used by all other Federal agencies.
Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages. Many past Bureau publications use MPF (Maximum Probable Flood) which has the same definition and usage as the PMF.
These publications, based on the most current knowledge and experience available, provided authoritative statements on the state of the art for three important technical areas involving dam safety.
In 1994, the ICODS Subcommittee to Review/Update the Federal Guidelines began an update to these guidelines to meet new dam safety challenges and to ensure consistency across agencies and users.

Forest Service Interagency Committee on Dam Safety National Weather Service . Bureau of Reclamation procedures estimate the PMF by evaluating the runoff from the most critical of the following situations: 1. However, all dams should be designed to withstand a relatively large flood without failure even when there is apparently no downstream hazard involved under present conditions of development. It is estimated by combining the most critical meteorologic and hydrologic conditions considered reasonably possible for the particular location under consideration.
