To ensure that industry best practices are understood, applied and adapted to Alberta’s needs, forums for building technical capacity, communication, cooperation and collaboration between dam owners, regulators, industry and professionals are necessary. Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) seeks opportunities for partnerships that deliver content tailored to those involved in operations and dam safety assessments and evaluations in Alberta.

2021-22 Dam Safety Webinar Series

In partnership with the Canadian Dam Association (CDA), AEP presents a series of technical webinars highlighting practical applications of assessment and evaluation methodologies and techniques used by AEP as a dam owner. This series includes 4 monthly webinars from December 2021 to March 2022.

Each webinar session will be recorded and available on this web page for a limited time following the live event. For more information and to register in the live events, visit Canadian Dam Association.
