Forum A – Design & Construction Working Group (½ day)
Date: Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017
, 1 pm - 4:30 pm
Since the 2014 CDA conference in Banff, a working group under the Dam Safety Committee has been advancing additional guidance on the design and construction aspects of dams.
The short document entitled “What dam owners need to know”, which can be found on the website, was the first product of this group.
Two additional documents entitled “A Primer on Dams, Canadian Perspective” and a future Bulletin “Design and Construction Considerations” are well advanced.
At this session, the working group will go over the contents of the documents and invite comments from the membership at large. Draft copies will be furnished in advance to all conference attendees who indicate their interest in participating.
