Event description

Description

Hosted by FEMA, the 2020 Dam Failure Life Loss Consequence Workshop has been developed to provide dam owners, emergency managers, regulators and other relevant stakeholders with a forum to discuss the needs of the industry in better estimating potential life loss consequence from dam failure. Better understanding of the risks from this potential consequence will enable owners to operate more safely; regulators to have confidence in the evolving industry practice; and practitioners to have suitable tools to respond to the needs of the industry.

Participants will participate in an forum to openly present and share ideas on current industry practice, improvements to current methods, and possible new avenues for development. From these discussions, a goal of the workshop is to ensure the tools used to quantify life safety risks from dam failure are being suitably developed and refined to meet the needs of the industry, regulators and practitioners.

Scope

Through this forum:

  • Industry practitioners can share their experiences with current or evolving methods for discussion on what is working well and what can be improved;
  • Developers of estimation methods can present their current practices, and receive input on their refinement; and
  • Regulators can share policy needs to ensure practices can meet these requirement, or be informed of new methods and provide input on how they may become accepted practice.
