Designing, Inspecting & Repairing Dams According to NCDEQ Guidelines
Customized design solutions to achieve regulatory compliance
A complex combination of state and federal regulations governs dam safety. Working with geotechnical and structural engineers, we design dam rehabilitation measures, including slope stabilization, new outlet structures, and spillways. At every step of the process, we advise clients on their legal obligations and the time and cost implications of various approaches to compliance.
Actionable strategies for understanding safety and limiting liability
WithersRavenel’s stormwater professionals create hydraulic models and prepare hydrologic and hydraulic reports for high hazard potential dams (HHPDs) to give dam owners the information they need to take steps to protect against liability claims. Where needed, we also prepare Emergency Action Plans in the state-approved format, including modeling worst-case scenarios and developing a communication plan for emergency response notifications.
Easy-to-understand operations and maintenance documentation
Understanding a dam’s characteristics and unique qualities goes a long way toward safer operations. WithersRavenel helps dam owners know their structures and plan for necessary rehabilitation and planned maintenance by developing site-specific operations and maintenance manuals.
