Spillway Safety Inspections
Cornforth Consultants provides inspection services of concrete-lined and unlined spillways for hydropower and flood control dams. We have five engineers approved by the FERC as Independent Consultants for Part 12 dam safety and related inspections.
Our firm has an in-house climbing team comprised of engineers and geologists that have undergone extensive training by the Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT). This unique service allows our engineers and geologists to reach areas that cannot be accessed using conventional means.
For documenting spillway conditions, our teams integrate photogrammetric techniques (e.g. drones and photo modeling tools) supported by stability analyses to address any potential failure modes.
Representative projects and services offered to clients such the Eugene Water and Electric Board, Portland General Electric, Portland Water Bureau, City of Spokane, and PacifiCorp Energy are listed below:
