Canadian Dam Association Bulletin - Fall 2016 - 42

The CDA 2017 Conference DAMS OF ALL SIZES: STATE OF PRACTICE AND EVOLVING REGULATIONS A cross Canada, dams are used to store water for renewable energy and water supply, retain mine tailings, provide recreation opportunities and create wildlife habitat. Dams are owned by the federal and provincial governments, electric utilities, industrial and mining companies, irrigation districts, municipalities and private individuals. With this wide range of dam types, sizes, and functions, dam owners face significant challenges in meeting their responsibilities and complying with regulations. Similarly, provincial agencies tasked with regulating dam safety are confronted with their own resource and legislative constraints. The Canadian Dam Association (CDA) 2017 Conference will examine these challenges and present real-world techniques, potential approaches and useful resources for the benefit of the dam community and the public. Along with a program of technical papers and presentations, workshops and technical tours, panel discussions will address topics such as regulatory compliance under budgetary constraints, and state of practice for tailings dams. The CDA Conference is the national forum for engineers, geoscientists, regulators, dam owners and operators, and other stakeholders with an interest in dams. It is an opportunity to exchange ideas and information related to advances in design, construction, and remedial works, as well as those concerning the regulation, reality, operational constraints, maintenance and management for both water-retaining and mining 42 dams. Attendance at the Conference and the pre-conference workshops qualifies for professional development credits, as required by many professional organizations. The 2017 CDA Conference will be held Oct. 14 to 20 in Kelowna, B.C.
