DAM SAFETY GROUP

Dam Safety literature available for download

The Dam Safety Group brings together a group of collaborative members, ideally positioned to use proven geophysical technology, services and products for Dam site investigation and monitoring together with seismic monitoring via earthquake early warning and evaluation systems.

The range of Members Geophysical technologies can be rapidly deployed and can provide an effective means to evaluate subsurface information and contribute to continuous monitoring and condition assessment throughout a structure’s life. Reliable and non-invasive it can be cost effectively integrated with other types of ground surveys to build a visual understanding of the overall subsurface of the site.

Facility Managers and Operators may be required to take decisive action to prevent catastrophic incidents in the event of an earthquake. Earthquake monitoring systems can assist decision making by providing predictive data before an earthquake and to evaluate the structural integrity of the dam or levee immediately after an earthquake.
