Canadian Dam Association Bulletin - Summer 2018 - 31

GUEST SPEAKERS
FROM THE CONFERENCE
Monday, October 15 - Alain Bourque,
M. Sc. Ouranos
Dealing with the ongoing and upcoming impacts of climate change on water
resources and its use.
The warming of the global climate system is unequivocal and indicates broader
changes in specific components of the
climate system: changes in evaporation
and precipitation patterns inducing changes in the water cycle, increased energy
becoming available from extreme weather
events, significant decreases in snow and
ice cover provoking regional to continental scale changes, etc. Although providing some opportunities, climate change is
considered as posing significant risks to
the well-being of society and the natural
environment, also affecting the economy
as well as the health and populations.
Adaptation is starting to happen
all across the globe, and good practices are increasingly documented.
While insisting on the importance
of connecting science to decision for
increased resilience, this presentation
will assume that dam managers prefer to
be perceived as part of the solution and
not part of the problems behind climate
change impacts.
Tuesday, October 16 - Stephen Rigbey,
P.Eng. BC Hydro (retired) Looking
beyond Oroville: Where do we go from
here?
The Independent Forensic Team
(IFT) report concluded that the failure involved a complicated interplay
between physical, organizational and
human factors that spanned decades.
There was no one simple 'failure mode'
or linear progression of events that led
to the spillway failure and subsequent
evacuation of 188,000 downstream
residents.
However, there were simple tell-tale
signs of major unresolved issues that
contributed to the failure, and these
were overlooked in numerous reviews by
generations of well-respected engineers.
The roles of the CDA, and the owners,
regulators and consultants, must be
defined in moving forward on this fundamental issue of challenging current
'best practice'.
Wednesday, October 17 - Antonin
Zaruba, P.Eng. Hydro-Québec (retired)
Chute Montmorency - cradle of hydroelectricity in Quebec
The evolution of hydroelectricity
in Quebec City and in the province
through the first documented industrial hydroelectric development. The
Canadian Dam Association * Summer 2018

1893 Montmorency development, still
in place, was upgraded in 2014.
