Ensure dam safety by knowing your failure modes- Three important areas to address in responding to the FERC letter on spillways

RELEASE DATE: August 1, 2017 Ensure dam safety by knowing your failure modes Three important areas to address in responding to the FERC letter on spillways HOLDEN, MA — A well-functioning flood-control spillway may not create revenue for a hydropower producer, but its safety function makes it a critical asset. Now that spillways will be under tighter review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), it is critical that dam owners understand what to look for, and how further t...

Odor Control and Combined Sewer Overflow Reduction

Odor Control and Combined Sewer Overflow Reduction

The Metropolitan District (MDC) of Hartford, CT is constructing the $500 million South Hartford Conveyance and Storage Tunnel, which will run from West Hartford to the Hartford Water Pollution Control Facility.  It is a key element of the MDC’s 20-year Clean Water Project that aims to safeguard the future of the Connecticut River by cleaning up Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) discharges to streams and reducing oxygen-depleting nitrogen in the river.  The tunnel will include odor co...

Modular Dams for Reduced LCOE Low Head Hydropower

Modular Dams for Reduced LCOE Low Head Hydropower

Modular Dams for Hydropower U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) sponsored studies show that new stream reach hydropower potential in the U.S. is about 460 TWh/yr., but most of the available sites have environmental and social sustainability challenges that can be partly addressed by run-of-river (ROR) projects, which are considered environmentally friendly because of the modest impoundment and the requirement that the flow upstream of the project is matched by the flow downstream. One of the major ...
