#BDSMonday

Due to the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 conference, the BDS has decided to host a number of lunchtime webinars throughout September 2020 to showcase some of the papers we received in preparation for the conference.

There will be a session held every Monday starting on 7 September in the run up to our AGM meeting and virtual Binnie Lecture by John Gosden on 5 October 2020.

Legacies - Discontinuance or Adaptation

Within this session there are Legislation updates from DEFRA and EA followed by 4 papers that discuss managing assets and optioneering for either remedial works or discontinuance.

Papers:

  • Managing Historical Legacies – Gwydyr Reservoirs
  • Discontinuance of legacy Dams- Natural Resources Wales
  • BDS Bi-Annual Conference 2020 – Ten Acre Reservoir Discontinuance Case Study
  • Stillorgan Reservoirs – Maintaining Stability During Decommissioning And For New Construction
