The purpose of the workshops is to educate dam owners, operators and engineering consultants about the dam inspection requirements and process. The dam permitting/approval process will also be covered along with basic dam terminology, design and information on how to hire an engineering consultant. The workshops will also provide an opportunity for dam owners/operators to meet one on one with WDNR Dam Safety staff, if desired.
The workshop cost is $20.00 and includes lunch and breaks. Registered Professional Engineers can earn 6 Professional Development Hours by attending the entire workshop. Attendees will receive a CD with course materials and other materials related to dam safety, IOMs, EAPs, permitting and inspections.
