On behalf of the Organising Committee, we would like thank everyone who was involved in making the ANCOLD Dam Operators Forum such a success!

Welcome from the Chair

On behalf of the Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) and the 2019 Forum Organising Committee, I invite you to join us in South Australia for the 2019 ANCOLD Dam Operators Forum from 27 – 28 March 2019.

The National Wine Centre, Adelaide, SA will host the 2019 Forum. It is a perfect venue on the edge of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens for us to focus on dam operations and the challenges we all face with “Doing more with less”. We will spend 27th March making new acquaintances and renewing past friendships while visiting Mount Bold dam in the Mount Lofty Ranges before travelling further south to visit the barrages on the Murray River at Goolwa. This will set us up for the Forum on 28th March for sharing our experiences and learning from each other about how we can continue to operate dams safely while our resources and budgets are cut and our dam assets continue to age. Come and share your innovative ideas and successes on how you have used new technology, materials and processes to ensure your dams are able to operate safely.

This Forum is for operators with a strong practical focus on operation and maintenance so please come and join us in Adelaide in March 2019. We would love you to join us and to hear your stories.

2019 ANCOLD Dam Operators Forum Convenor
