Now for something completely different - session 3

Event organised by The British Dam Society

21 September 2020

This event has now ended



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.

Now for something completely different

Within this session there are 3 papers that show new ways of working, new applications, unique problems.


  • Fibre optic leakage monitor system for an underground water reservoir made of precast wall units: Hanchurch Service Reservoir
  • Balgray Reservoir: Outlet Pipework Condition Assessment and Rehabilitation
  • Large leakage incident in a Norwegian Concrete Faced Rockfill Dam due to ice build up within the dam body
  • Non-invasive detection and monitoring of a leak within a Victorian peat core dam
