Webcast: Workshop on designing booms and structures in dam forebays

On May 19, Hydro Review will be hosting a webcast that provides attendees a workshop-style approach to the topic of design and engineering of booms and structures in the forebay of dams.

Structures, like booms, in the forebay of dams are used to guide or exclude debris, provide public or dam safety, and, in some cases, address fish passage, water temperature or water quality concerns. 

This workshop will help dam owners and operators understand the key components of the design and engineering of booms and structures that will lead to:

  • Reduced operation and maintenance costs
  • Increased efficiency
  • Extended service life
  • Reduced procurement, installation and construction costs
  • Better understanding of the engineering, design, location and anchoring factors involved

This webcast is sponsored by Pacific Netting Products. Presenters are Conor Shannon, P.E., naval architect with Art Anderson Associates, and Andrew Peters, director markets and applications with Pacific Netting Products. It will be moderated by Elizabeth Ingram, content director for Hydro Review and HYDROVISION International.
