Abstract: The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is responsible for protecting the Federal investment in over 300 water storage and conveyance facilities in the 17 Western States. Reclamation's Review of Operation and Maintenance (RO&M) Program was established in 1948, to provide periodic examinations of operation and maintenance (O&M) practices at Reclamation facilities. This paper describes the history, purpose, and structure of the RO&M Program. The paper also discusses examination procedures, team composition, and documentation requirements. Additionally, the paper will briefly describe case studies which exemplify the need for periodic examinations of hydraulic structures.
