Project Description

Annual Dam Safety Inspections

In 2017, Austin Engineering was contracted to complete the Annual Dam Safety Inspections of five large dams on the Kootenay River System including the Lower Bonnington Dam, Upper Bonnington Dam, Corra Linn Dam, South Slocan Dam, and the Brilliant Dam to meet the requirements of the BC Dam Safety Regulations. The inspections conformed to the Canadian Dam Association Safety Guidelines and ensured all dams were receiving due care and maintenance.

These inspections consisted of a tour of each dam and associated works, interviews with plant operators, analysis of dam safety instrumentation, and preparation of a thorough dam safety Annual Inspection Report.
