Canadian Dam Association Bulletin - Winter 2019 - 28

Honouring the industry's leaders
On October 16, CDA paid tribute to industry leaders
at its annual awards gala in Quebec City.
INGE ANDERSON AWARD
OF MERIT - NORBERT
MORGENSTERN
CDA's highest honour, the Inge
Anderson Award of Merit, is presented every two years to recognize
CDA members who have distinguished
themselves through significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge and practices related to dams
in Canada. This year's recipient is
Dr. Norbert Morgenstern.
Dr. Morgenstern is a professor
emeritus at the University of Alberta
where he began his teaching career
in 1968 after receiving his Ph.D. from
the University of London. In his time
there he has influenced and worked
with numerous graduate students
including many industry experts
and many previous CDA scholarship
winners.
Over the years, Dr. Morgenstern
has been the recipient of numerous
awards, medals, and honours for
his contributions to the geotechnical field including the Canadian
Geotechnical Society's most prestigious award, the Legget Medal. He has
also delivered the Rankine Lecture
(British Geotechnical Association),
Terzaghi Lecture (American Society
of Civil Engineers), and Casagrande
Lecture (Boston Society of Civil
Engineers Section), so it is fitting that
CDA choose him as its 2018 recipient of the Inge Anderson Award.

Dr. Morgenstern has also been recognized for his work outside the industry
as a Member of the Order of Canada,
and also receiving the Alberta Order
of Excellence.
Dr. Morgenstern's CV includes more
than 300 publications in technical
journals, conferences, and textbooks.
There is even a slope stability method
named after him: Morgenstern Price.
He has worked on a wide range of
geotechnical issues, including slope
stability, landslides, dams, mining
projects, permafrost, oil sands, pipelines, highways, bridges, buildings,
and offshore structures.
Dr. Morgenstern has led multiple
review panels, including the panels
that investigated the Mt. Polley and
Samarco tailings dam failures. He
has also played a lead role in various industry advisory groups and
committees.

This award recognizes CDA members for their valued contributions
and outstanding commitment to the
advancement of the Association.

crucial to the delivery of the resulting
workshops. She continues to lead the
Dam Safety Review Working Group,
providing technical expertise and
doing the leg work required to produce results.
In addition to being a highly successful publication for CDA, the DSR
Technical Bulletin is the basis for a
high-quality workshop that has been
offered 15 times in six countries, often
with customization for the local delegates, including one in French at the
2018 Conference. The workshop has
demonstrated to the world the high
quality of dam engineering practice
in Canada.
After graduating from UBC in Civil
Engineering in 1996, Ms. Oswell
started working at BC Hydro on
the construction of the Stave Falls
power plant. Over the next decade,
she would explore other opportunities, working in New Zealand with
Damwatch and with SNC-Lavalin on
projects in Indonesia. She obtained
her Master's in Engineering Geology
from the University of New South
Wales and then returned to BC Hydro
in 2007 as the Dam Safety Program
Engineer.
Ms. Oswell continues to serve on
the CDA Board of Directors, chairs the
Professional Development Committee,
and makes technical presentations or
serves as session chair at CDA conferences. Ms. Oswell has earned a
