The Consequence Assessment for Dam Failure Scenarios Training Course is designed to provide dam owners, emergency managers, and other relevant stakeholders with information needed to define and estimate consequences for dam failure scenarios. The course will provide participants with an overview and description of current consequence estimation methodologies, including information on the technical capability and resource requirements for each.
The course will highlight the importance of defining dam failure scenarios and assessing consequences through the presentation of case studies. The full range of social, institutional, and environmental consequences will be addressed during the course, including focus on direct and indirect economic consequences and loss of life estimation. Specific instructions and detailed examples for computing economic and loss of life consequences will be provided for some of the more commonly used procedures and methodologies. Participants will be provided with the concepts of how consequence assessment is an important part of risk management strategies, how to establish initial priorities using consequence data, and how consequence estimation plays an important role in emergency preparedness efforts.
Target Audience: the audience for this course is limited to dam owners, professional staff of dam safety programs and Emergency Managers at the Local, Tribal, State and Federal levels, and also dam safety personnel from the private sector, such as engineering firms.
