Dam Engineering

Dam Engineering

Dams bring drinking water, power, flood control, recreation, economic possibilities and many other advantages to people. Safe operation and maintenance is a key to sustaining these advantages and avoiding potential disaster.

Our dam engineers provide studies, inspections, and designs to meet the needs of today’s dam owners. Our personnel take a hands-on approach to identifying, studying, and preparing solutions to complex dam issues. Over the lifecycle of a project, this can involve determining the reasons for equipment inefficiency or failure, addressing safety issues, optimizing water usage for increased generation, modernization of existing civil structures, and meeting regulatory requirements such as permitting and state dam safety obligations, including delivery of Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) and functional exercise services.
