Small earthen dams are a major concern.

Many were built decades ago and had no maintenance. Sometimes they don't even know who built it or have any blueprints.

Some houses in my hometown neighborhood flooded after a earthen dam failed. Most people didn't know it was there.

People have no idea if their land is protected by something built maybe 80 years ago. It might have been a private project, county, or city.

Just finding them all and inspecting is a challenge.
