Stantec has the in-house talent and skills necessary to handle all aspects of dam safety reviews and rehabilitations. As owner’s engineer, we’ve partnered with numerous clients to provide operations and maintenance support, dam safety training, inspections, and project monitoring.
We’re leaders in emergency preparedness and assistance with emergency response plans for either low flow/drought or flood situations. For decades, we’ve provided consultant services to organizations looking to develop or implement dam safety programs for existing or future dam inventories.
We’ve also designed rehabilitation solutions at numerous dams worldwide, including upgrades and life extension at various existing facilities. Whether we’re evaluating structures for earthquakes, floods, or forced outages, we work with you to determine remediation measures that best meet the needs of your structure and satisfy current safety requirements and guidelines.
In North America and abroad, we’ve set up dam safety programs, developed dam safety committees, and prepared guidelines. These projects have helped owners save millions in costs by applying our dam design expertise.
We know the ins and outs of various international dam safety guidelines:
- US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Division of Dam Safety and Inspections.
- US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
- International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD)
- United States Society on Dams (USSD)
- Canadian Dam Association (CDA)
- Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD)
- New Zealand Society on Large Dams (NZSOLD)
Our consultants offer engineering in a variety of dam safety services such as inspections and condition evaluations, design estimates, potential failure modes analyses (PFMA), risk assessments, spillway design and expansion, emergency action plan (EAP) development, and public safety and recreation plans.
