2020 NDSP Technical Seminar Presentations

The National Dam Safety Review Board Work Group on Dam Safety Training welcomed all dam and levee safety professionals and those responsible for responding to dam and levee safety incidents to the annual National Dam Safety Program Technical Seminar (NDSPTS).

The 2020 National Dam Safety Technical Program Technical Seminar took place February 19-20, 2020, on the campus of the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland. This year, 225 individuals were in attendance. This seminar highlighted and shared advances in the science and engineering for prediction and estimation of extreme storm events, hydrologic and hydraulic forecasting and decision support and dam engineering design. Below, please find  the 2020 National Dam Safety Technical Program Technical Seminar presentations. The presentations provide historical perspective, recent extreme event case histories and state-of-the practice methods and tools.
