Dams and Reservoirs

Failing dam infrastructure is becoming a major challenge for dam owners throughout the United States.  Maintaining existing dams, following state and federal regulations, finding sites for new dams, and permitting and constructing new reservoirs can be challenging for many owners.

S&ME supports owners with all of their dam and reservoir needs, from routine inspections to siting, permitting and designing brand new reservoirs. We assist our clients with their complex and highly visible decisions as we understand how dynamic the industry is, from emerging technologies to changes in government regulations.

S&ME has completed numerous new dam investigations and design projects for a large variety of owners including flood control and water supply reservoirs for states and municipalities, coal ash impoundments for utilities, and recreation lakes for non-profit organizations, home owner associations and individual property owners among others.
