Data Down Under: Creating A Risk-Based Approach To Dam Monitoring And Maintenance
By David Appleyard

Hunter Water Grahamstown dam
Facing ongoing influences such as climate change, dam owners are under increasing pressure to ensure the safety of their assets. The consequences of failure are becoming more significant too, in light of factors like downstream urbanisation. With asset owners integrating new solutions to help them rise to the challenge, Australia's Hunter Water has turned its eyes skyward in a bid to advance its asset monitoring performance to the next level.

As dam assets age, accurate monitoring becomes increasingly important to ensure safety. With the impact of broad trends such as increasing urbanisation and global warming, the challenges facing dam owners and the potential consequences of failure are mounting.

Urbanisation, for example, is seeing more people living downstream of a dam than ever before. This represents a significant increase in the consequences of failure and associated catastrophic risk. Meanwhile, global warming is introducing far more volatility to weather events, making them much harder to predict and manage.
