"Operation and maintenance should be fully documented, including the routine activities and systematic inspection processes, and complete information on project maintenance, rehabilitation, and improvements. In addition to records on the actual operations, the operating record should include data on reservoir levels, inflow and outflow, drainage system discharge and structural behavior. If there are maintenance problems that require continuing remedial work, a thorough record of the work should be maintained, and a final report made after complete remedy of the problem."[1]

"All operation and maintenance manuals should be kept current, and records should be maintained of instructions, inspections and equipment testing, with copies to those responsible for design and dam safety inspections." [1]
