By their very presence, dams reduce the sediment transport carrying capacity of the watercourses that they block. Reservoir sedimentation can render a dam not just useless, but dangerous.

Join our expert panellists as they present case studies of defunct dams, the challenges associated with removing dams, and opportunities for passing sediment through dams to increase their effective life. Case studies highlighting reservoir sedimentation and dam removal analyses will be presented using the latest features of HEC-RAS (6.4 just released 6/6/23!) and SRH-2D.
