The conference is during Power Generation Week, providing networking opportunities with 20,000+ professionals and key decisionmakers.
November 12 - 13, 2014: Midwest Hydro Users Group--Fall Regional Meeting
The Midwest Hydro Users Group will be holding their annual fall regional meeting, an owners-only meeting, and a full membership meeting. Additional meeting information:
The training outlines the hydrologic, seismic, geotechnical, electrical, mechanical, and structural considerations of dam safety as well as operation, maintenance, surveillance, and emergency preparedness. Presentations, case histories, and a walk-through abbreviated examination will be used to present the multidiscipline approach to an effective dam safety program.
In conjunction with Reclamation's Upper Colorado Region, Technical Service Center, and Research and Development Office, Professor Aaron Wolf from Oregon State University has developed a training course on managing water conflict. Professor Wolf will discuss the salient elements of this training course in his presentation. See the video.
