*Updated February 11: Due to unforeseen circumstances the March webinar topic has been changed. We are working to get the new webinar topic approved for NY PDHs, please check back for additional details. 

Join us for What Can I Really Expect to Get Out of a Semi-Quantitative Risk Analyses (SQRA)? on March 9, 2021 from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm. This webinar will provide owners, consultants, and regulators an understanding of the benefits and limitations of an SQRA, what the results mean, and how the results can be used to prioritize actions in your dam or levee safety program.

Dam and levee safety risk analyses have been gaining more and more attention over the last few years.  Risk analysis training, in general, and SQRA training, in particular, is becoming more available.  Recently FERC published draft SQRA guidelines for public comment indicating a proposed expansion by that agency into using risk tools.  Other federal agencies with dam and levee safety programs are also expanding the use of SQRAs in their programs as are a handful of state dam safety agencies.  The growth of the use of SQRAs as a dam and levee safety tool is expected to continue to increase in the coming years.

Five Learning Objectives of This Webinar:

  • How can I scale and scope an SQRA to fit my needs?
  • How can simplified risk tools help me identify and prioritize my dam safety activities and actions?
  • Cost vs. benefit, is an SQRA worth it?
  • What information do I really get out of an SQRA that I don’t already have?
  • How can the process of conducting an SQRA and the results be useful to a regulator?

Examples will be provided that illustrate how the results of an SQRA can potentially change an owner’s or regulator’s emphasis and priority of dam safety actions (for the better).

This webinar is primarily focused on those that have little understanding or experience in dam or levee safety risk.  This includes owners, regulators, consultants and others who are involved in dam and levee safety management activities.
