49.1. Where the owner of a dam intends, within 5 years, to remove it, reconstruct it or make a structural alteration to it that affects all parts of the dam or that, because of the scope of the work, is equivalent to reconstructing the dam, the dam safety review may be limited to the following:
(1) a check of the condition and behaviour of the dam by means of an inspection of every structural component; and
(2) a check of the functionality and reliability of the discharge facilities.
The report documenting the dam safety review must include
(1) the report of the most recent inspection carried out pursuant to section 41; and
(2) the opinion of the engineer in charge on the structural and functional safety of the dam and, where applicable, on the measures proposed to prevent the risks of dam failure until the planned work is carried out.
The report must also contain the information referred to in subparagraphs 1 to 4 and 6 of the second paragraph of section 49.
Paragraph 1 of sections 32 and 38 and subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of sections 76 and 77 do not apply to a dam whose safety review is conducted under this section.
