Drilling, Dams, and Concrete

A couple of local dams are up for some renovation.  The dam over at Center Hill was found to a leak or two.  From how I’ve read this, looks like the Army Corps of Engineers were drilling into the concrete and found the leak.

Now, my question is Why are we drilling into a concrete dam? Would that not cause structure integrity to weaken?

The ramifications of this dam, or the dam over at Wolf Creek to break would be devastating.
