Workshop: Designing Booms and Structures in Forebays of Dams – What You Really Need to Know

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 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
