  • Dam safety group seeks plastic pipe case studies

    Authors compiling a technical manual on the use of plastic pipe in embankment dams are inviting dam owners to submit case studies by April 28 on their use of plastic pipe in such areas as outlet works, spillways, siphons, and toe drains.

    The National Dam Safety Program is sponsoring development of the manual, which will supplement information presented in the Federal Emergency Management Agency's 2005 publication "Conduits through Embankment Dams."

    Initially, the committee responsible for the new manual wants only minimal information on applicable plastic pipe installations. Subsequently, it will solicit details on selected case histories from contributors, who will be acknowledged in the manual's preface.

    The manual will not address other uses of plastic pipe often associated with embankment dams, such as instrumentation and relief wells.

    Basic information must be submitted by April 28 to Chuck Cooper of the Bureau of Reclamation, one of the manual's primary authors. For more information, contact Cooper: (1) 303-445-3262; E-mail: ccooper@do.usbr.gov.
