Webinar: Low-Level Conduits- What Can Go Wrong, How to Inspect, How to Repair?

This event qualifies for 2 PDH

Join us on August 11, from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm Eastern for Low-Level Conduits – What Can Go Wrong, How to Inspect, How to Repair? This course will provide an overview of commonly observed issues associated with the most common type of spillway for relatively small dams (riser and low-level conduit). Importantly, the presentation will summarize methods to evaluate the condition of existing conduits and present common methods to repair and/or replace conduits. At the completion of the course, the participants should be able to identify common issues with low-level conduits, to include inlets and outlets, and have probable courses of action to address the identified issues.


Five Learning Objectives of This Course:

  • General dam terminology
  • Risks associated with low-level conduits
  • Commonly issues with low-level conduit spillways
  • Methods to identify/inspects issues with low-level conduits
  • Methods to repair common issues with low-level conduits
