Dams, Levees & Impoundments
For millennia, civilizations have been shaped by structures that retain water or direct water flow...
Today, dams, levees and impoundments continue to play a critical role in community infrastructure. Effectively balancing recreation, safety, and economics, we provide a full range of geotechnical, water resources, civil, and environmental services for dams, levees, and other flood control structures. Backed by 50 years of experience, we work alongside clients to address flood control, water supply, recreational, mine spoil, and power by-product storage impoundments, as well as riverine levee and floodwall systems. Our experts form an integral part of dam safety initiatives across the globe, and have worked on many of the US Army Corps of Engineers highest risk systems. We resolve intricate issues for everything from complex seepage, stability, and risk issues at specific project sites, to policy guidelines and technical instructions for national dam safety programs. Whether we’re defining safety standards and guidelines for FloodSAFE California or providing levee engineering for the Hurricane Katrina rebuilding effort, it all comes down to providing resilient, sustainable water management systems for our communities.
