This report presents a review of emergency closure devices for locks and dams. It focuses on the hydraulic aspects of emergency closure using either a gate placed as a single unit or one placed as a series of individual sections. This report also examines guidance, past field experience, and model investigations of placing emergency closure gates in flowing water. A concept for an alternative means to stop water flowing through an open spillway bay is also proposed.
