From 8:30 am to 4:50 pm
The Dam Design and Construction Summit at the Royal on the Park, Brisbane, is dedicated to maintaining the state of practise in the analysis and design of dams and water resource projects.
The Dam Design and Construction Summit draws on the knowledge and experience of dam building stakeholders, dedicated to maintaining the “state of practice” in the analysis and design of dams and water resource projects, from each perspective. In light of the Coalition’s new dam policy, which highlights up to 200 potential sites for dams in Australia, the emphasis on dams and dam building will now be scrutinized. This Summit provides a forum for federal government, state government, dam engineers, owners, operators, environmental managers, and interest groups to share and discuss best practices and new technologies in design, construction, rehabilitation, monitoring, environmental issues, energy and population demands, safety and security, and development of skills. The speaker faculty will include specialists with a broad range of experience from government agencies, utilities, academia, water districts, consulting firms and private industry.
