The OWRB’s Dam Safety Program will be hosting a Hydraulics Modeling Workshop in Oklahoma City on December 3, 2014. The course will cover common modeling myths, basic modeling concepts, terminology, and pre-development modeling decisions. Various types of hydraulic models, descriptions of common 1- and 2-D models, and the relative costs associated with each model type will also be introduced. Additionally, participants will be exposed to the differences in data requirements and modeling strategies between 1- and 2-D models.
The course will be led by Marc Johnson, PE, CFM, and Lee Beshoner, PE, CFM from FTN Associates, Ltd. Mr. Johnson has 35 years of experience in the development and application of 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensional hydraulic and hydrodynamic models. Mr. Beshoner has 12 years of experience in water resources engineering, including analyses with 1-D and 2-D hydraulic models and engineering design. The cost for this course is $30 and includes breakfast and lunch for attendees who reserve their seat by Monday, December 1. For more details, please contact Emma Moradi at (405) 530-8800 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Download the Workshop Registration Form.
Low Hazard Inspection Registration Open Now
The OWRB is now offering free low hazard dam inspections, including an on-site inspection, full inspection report, and a breach inundation map. Dam owners benefit from this program because state law requires them to complete a dam inspection every five years. Dam owners can also take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the inspection and maintenance techniques in order to prolong the life of their dam and manage their liabilities as dam owners. Contact Emma Moradi at (405) 530-8800 or email@example.com to register for your free inspection.
The OWRB coordinates the Oklahoma Dam Safety Program to ensure the safety of more than 4,700 dams in the state. The Program requires inspections for all jurisdictional size dams based on the presence of downstream development.
In addition, owners of high hazard dams are required to have an emergency action plan (EAP) in place. Copies of the EAP must be submitted to local law enforcement agencies and emergency management officials. OWRB staff require submittal and subsequent approval of plans and specifications prior to all new dam construction and modifications to existing dams.
