Mark your calendars for the CDA Workshop on Dam Safety Reviews
The Canadian Dam Association will be hosting a workshop to provide training on conducting Dam Safety Reviews (DSRs). This workshop presents the concepts and process developed in the recently completed Technical Bulletin on DSRs. In addition to working through the main features of the Technical Bulletin, a case study is introduced and attendees work through how to scope a dam safety review, how to work through the hazard-failure mode-control aspect of the safety analysis, and how to present the findings of a dam safety review.
Who should attend?
The workshop is aimed at dam owners, consultants and regulators who want to know what the Canadian Dam Association considers to be good practice for Dam Safety Reviews.
The Toronto session will be held either March 20 (downtown Toronto location will be confirmed shortly). This session is being supported by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and is endorsed by the Ontario Waterpower Association. Registration will open shortly.
April 25 at the Courtyard by Marriott Calgary Airport. This session is being held in cooperation with Alberta Environment and Parks. Registration will open shortly.
The workshop will be held prior to the CDA 2017 Conference on October 14 or 15. Members who are already planning to attend the annual conference may wish to travel a bit earlier so they can take in this workshop! Registration will open in late April.
