ASDSO Strategic Plan Update Underway
 
With the assistance of a pool of dedicated member volunteers and ASDSO staff, the ASDSO Board of Directors is in the process of updating ASDSO's Strategic Plan, a task undertaken every five years. To help inform members about the plan and ASDSO's many activities, we will highlight one goal per month in the next few issues of the newsletter, beginning this month with:


The team working on this goal consists of board members Bill McCormick (CO) and Hal Van Aller (MD); volunteers Carl Montana (CJM Engineering), Tony Fernandes (Aqua Pennsylvania), Scott Arends (Hanson Professional Services); and staff representative Mark Ogden.

Within this goal, the following objectives guide yearly project development/implementation:

1. Support and assist states in determining condition assessments of regulated dams and support coordination of providing this data to the National Inventory of Dams.
2. Improve state enforcement capabilities.
3. Manage a national state performance metrics collection and analysis program. Utilize data to assist states in improving their programs.
4. Identify critical gaps in state programs and provide peer review services.
5. Provide general support for states including facilitating communication between states, providing training opportunities, providing technical resources and guidelines and encouraging state representatives' participation in ASDSO.

In April, teams will give first-round reports on their analyses of how well ASDSO has been carrying out its goals over the past four years. Members will then have an opportunity to provide feedback leading up to a face-to-face summit of all team members at Dam Safety '16 in Philadelphia.

State Notes    

Dam Owner Outreach and Education in South Carolina

Since the historic flooding of October 2015, many dam owners in South Carolina have been facing unique and lasting challenges. For many, the challenges have been overwhelming. On March 12, more than 100 dam owners attended a workshop hosted by the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and partners, including ASDSO, that introduced dam owners to information and people who can help inform the owners' decisions about their dams.

Tom Woosley (center) distributed ASDSO's Living With Dams booklets to workshop attendees.
Attending the event on behalf of ASDSO were Past President Tom Woosley (Georgia Safe Dams Program) and President-Elect Dusty Myers (Mississippi Dam Safety Division), who answered questions about ASDSO and state dam safety programs in general, and distributed ASDSO educational materials, including ASDSO's Living With Dams booklets.

White House Holds Water Summit to Recognize World Water Day
  
From ASCE Government Relations, March 25, 2016: The White House marked the 23rd anniversary of World Water Day with a series of events, announcements and new commitments by the Administration, non-profit partners and private companies, including a new blue ribbon commission to study water reuse, sponsored in part by ASCE. The United Nations began recognizing World Water Day in 1993, using the day to raise awareness on the importance of providing clean water as a basic human necessity. For this year's events, ASCE provided expertise at several round tables leading up to the summit. On display at the summit were state-of-the-art rapid deployment stream gauges, advanced remote sensing technology and a Lego display built by engineers from Denmark showcasing the sustainable water practices currently used throughout that country. While discussing the challenges climate change poses to world water supplies, Alice Hill, a Special Assistant to the President with the National Security Council cited ASCE's work on climate adaptation, specifically the new paradigm engineers face referenced in the ASCE paper, Adapting Infrastructure and Civil Engineering Practice to a Changing Climate.

 
USDA Watershed Rehabilitation Status 

In fiscal years 2014 and 2015 Congress appropriated a total of $24 million in discretionary and $335 million in mandatory funding through the 2014 Farm Bill for the Watershed Rehabilitation Program, signifying the importance and critical role of watershed structures. This funding supports and strengthens communities by rehabilitating aging infrastructure, jobs creation and commerce, and protecting homes and families.

In response to this funding level, project sponsors from 35 states submitted funding requests of approximately $870 million for rehabilitation of more than 800 dams. As in past years, the funding requests far exceeded available funding. This funding may only be used for rehabilitation of aging dams constructed with assistance of the USDA Watershed Programs.

Funding provided in 2014 and 2015 will result in rehabilitation planning, design, and/or construction of 139 dams in 26 states. The dams were selected for funding based on recent assessments that evaluated the condition of the dams and the potential risks to life and property if dam failure occurred. $14.4 million is being utilized to complete assessments of 605 dams in 31 states. Congress appropriated $12 million in discretionary funding for the Watershed Rehabilitation program for fiscal year 2016. These funds will be used for the assessment, design, and construction of additional rehabilitation projects.



Bureau of Indian Affairs: DRIFT Act Would Provide Funding for Deferred Dam Maintenance

S. 2717, the Dam Repairs and Improvements for Tribes (DRIFT) Act of 2016
, would establish a revenue stream to clear more than $500 million in deferred maintenance costs at tribal dams over the next 20 years. It would also create a tribal flood mitigation program within the Department of the Interior. Read more.

GEER Issues Preliminary Report on 2015-16 Midwest Floods


Released this month by the Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance Association (GEER) and freely available for download: Preliminary Observations of Levee Performance and Damage following the 2015-16 Midwest Floods in Missouri and Illinois, USA.  Unusual winter storms in the Midwest caused historic flooding in Illinois and Missouri that disrupted transportation systems and overtopped levees, displacing thousands of people and causing more than 20 fatalities. A team from the GEER Association, supported by the National Science Foundation, was mobilized to investigate the impacts of record and near-record flood crests and the performance of flood protection systems in Illinois and Missouri. The team worked collaboratively with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and with state and local organizations to augment the reconnaissance effort. The team documented the geotechnical, hydraulic, climatic, and policy related issues as part of a systems-based approach to understand the overall performance of the flood protection system in the central Midwest. Preliminary observations of the 19 sites visited by the teams are documented in this report. Additional analysis of the sites will be presented in a final report.


Lessons Learned from the St. Francis Dam Failure
  • A bill has been introduced in Congress (HR 3153) proposing that the site of the St. Francis Dam Failure be designated as a national memorial. The ASDSO leadership sent a letter of support to the bill's sponsor, Steven Knight (CA).
  • The March 2016 issue of Failure Magazine features an interview with Missouri University of Science and Technology Professor J. David Rogers on lessons learned from the March 1928 St. Francis dam failure, including impacts on the Hoover Dam project, state and federal dam safety programs, and the civil engineer profession. The article is freely available at this link. 
     
 
 
Instructor: Donald Bruce, Geosystems, L.P.

This webinar reviews the different methods used to create foundation cutoff walls by methods other than grouting alone. A distinction is drawn between Category 1 walls (which are "excavate and replace") and Category 2 walls (which are "mixed in place").

Key takeaways include:
  • General background to dam and levee distributions in North America as related to geologic and seismic conditions;
  • Techniques used to construct Category 1 walls;
  • Techniques used to construct Category 2 walls;
  • The concept of composite walls; and
  • A case study review of the two phases of remediation at Wolf Creek Dam.
