This event qualifies for 1 CLPs

With a growing number of dams approaching their design service life, dam safety engineers are looking for ways to mitigate the risks related to public safety, aging infrastructure and rising maintenance costs.  

Modernizing dam monitoring and maintenance practices with digital advancements, including the latest automated condition monitoring solutions, drone-captured reality modeling and digital twins, are giving public sector dam operators tools to more safely and consistently protect the public and the environment from the effects of dam failure through surveillance and early identification.

Join us as thought leaders from government agencies and the business community share their insights as they assess the current situation in dam safety programs, the current regulatory climate, and new funding opportunities for modernization. Also, learn how a Californian county water agency is leveraging remote monitoring technologies to improve operational safety and deliver situational intelligence.


Learning Objectives:


  • Identify the limitations of the current mechanisms in place to monitor dam safety.
  • Define what elements of dam performance must be monitored, including dam integrity, water flow, sluice and causeway conditions, etc.
  • Review the role of automation and remote sensor monitoring, what they provide, and metrics to gauge their effectiveness
  • Outline new benefits that come from automation, such as modeling dam performance under a range of conditions
