Brazil: Prior Reports Warned of Possible Vale Dam Collapse

The audit by Germany-based TÜV SÜD, which was seen by Reuters, said the dam adhered to the minimum legal requirements for stability but it raised a number of concerns, particularly about the dam’s drainage and monitoring systems.

The auditor made 17 recommendations to improve the Brumadinho dam’s safety, primarily suggesting the company address various areas eroded away by static liquefaction.
