Black & Veatch assesses other aspects of dam hydraulic structures, such as impacts of debris and sedimentation on capacity, spillway chutes, energy dissipation, aging of outlet valves and conduits, and downstream channel constraints. We understand that for a dam to safely serve its intended purposes, each component must operate reliably and in harmony with the entire reservoir and watershed system. This requires regular condition assessment and risk evaluation, regular assessment of operation and maintenance, and sometimes capital projects to mitigate unacceptable risks.
