ESP takes a practical approach to dam engineering and consulting. We apply appropriate engineering principles to design and rehabilitation, while addressing regulatory requirements and being mindful of our client’s goals, objectives and financial constraints. Our engineers, geologists, geophysicists, and surveyors have abundant experience providing professional services for new and existing dams. Our personnel’s dam experience range from rehabilitation of low hazard earth dams, to assessing slope stability and seismic stability of ash pond embankments, to consulting on large hydroelectric dams.
H&H Modeling and Inundation Mapping
Third party development around dams and aging infrastructure combined with advances in methodologies and safety regulations are pressing issues. ESP staff have significant experience in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling and inundation mapping in support of dam projects. Our professionals understand dam safety regulations that dam owners must adhere to and know how to work with clients to meet these requirements.
