The Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG), Dams Technical Working Group, is proud to present a workshop that focuses on the role and contribution of engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers in the Risk Informed Decision Making (RIDM) process in managing dam and levee safety programs. Risks associated with geological potential failure modes and communicating these conditions to the Risk Assessment (RA) team will be emphasized including the methodology, and implementation of RA for dam and levee foundations. 


The workshop will include breakfasts, breaks, and lunches each day, and a social hour after at the conclusion of the first day. The cost for AEG members will be $425 and $475 for nonmembers. Hotel rooms will be available at the Denver West Marriott for $144/night.
