  31. Investigation ReportFindings • Increased hydraulic system relief pressures and fracture of the strut failure tube failure bolts. • Leaves not mitered. • PLC programming incorrectly indicated that the downstream gate was mitered (closed). • No operator verification of miter or intervention. • Filling of lock chamber with the downstream gate leaves not in miter. • Appreciable unbalanced head on the unmitered downstream gate leaves • Catastrophic failure – miter gate leaves move past miter

  32. Actions Taken By MVS Based on Report Recommendations • Standard Operator Procedures and Training • Programming Ladder Logic Control • Additional Miter Gate Switch • Policy on Changes and Inter-Office Coordination • Relief Valve Gages and Mechanical Linkages
