This annual workshop provides an opportunity to catch up with the latest developments in technology and O&M procedures with respect to hydrologic warning systems and various aspects of dam safety and operations. Attendees are exposed to a range of experience and expertise from both the program presenters and networking opportunities.

The agenda will include presentations on dam safety considerations, significant flood events, new & changing technologies, and tips/tricks for operation and maintenance of hydrologic monitoring / warning systems.
