The work associated with relicensing, modernization, upgrades, rehabilitation, repair, or maintenance of dams often has an underwater component. Frequently, it is not practical or cost-effective to dewater. Underwater repair minimizes the impact on power generation and recreation. It also eliminates the adverse structural and environmental impacts associated with dewatering.
