CDA presents Awards
PETER HALLIDAY AWARD FOR
SERVICE - TONY BENNETT
Tony began his career at Ontario Power
Generation 35 years ago in the geotechnical field eventually working his way
up to Director of Dam Safety. During this

His efforts at OPG were the basis for the
work the CDA has done with respect to
Public Safety Around Dams. This work
has resulted in saving lives. A new statistic is that there are five fewer fatal incidents per year at dams in Canada since
the introduction of the CDA public safety
around dams.
Tony's involvement with CDA activities is quite extensive. He's been on the
planning and delivery of multiple working groups, workshops, and conferences
including Toronto in 1989, Ottawa in
2003, and Niagara in 2010. He's served
on the board as Provincial Director,

The winners were Bill Kappel, Syed
Abbas, Seifu Guangul, George Sabol,
John Menninger, and Sal Figliuzzi for
their paper from the 2017 conference
titled Updating PMP for the Elbow River:
Complex Terrain, Unique Solutions. The
work of this paper included an updated
probable maximum precipitation to get
a better understanding of the hydrology,
and from that develop design criteria
for off-stream storage in the upper part
of the basin. Given the complex conditions in the basin, a team of experts was
involved in the PMP determination and
hydrologic modelling.
