ASDSO National Conference 2012

October 4 2012 | News

ECM Consultants, Inc. recently served as a sponsor for the 2012 Association of State Dam Safety Officials (ASDSO) National Conference held September 16-21 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO. This annual conference is one of the leading conferences in the country devoted to dam safety.  The 2012 conference attracted 1,100 attendees from all 50 states and several countries. ECM’s Dr. Babak Naghavi, P.E., P.H., represented the firm at the conference as did Sunina Shrestha, E.I. who participated in the ASDSO-DHS Workshop: Dam Break Flood Simulation (DSS-Wise) Program.

During the past four years, ECM has provided safety inspections for an average of 200 privately and publicly owned dams per year throughout Louisiana as part of the Louisiana Dam Safety Program for Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD). These inspections ensure that the man-made impoundment structures and the attendant water control devices are functioning to design capabilities.  The inspections are performed in accordance with the Louisiana Dam Safety Program to make certain that public safety is not compromised by the presence of dams, and to minimize potential hazards to downstream life and property in the event of a dam failure.
