ICOLD Update

The following ICOLD draft bulletins are available to view on the ICOLD website.

  • Bulletin 150 Cutoffs for Dams
  • Bulletin 160 Dam decommissioning guidelines

Comments are invited on the draft bulletin Flood evaluation, hazard determination and risk management. This is available on the ICOLD members area, reference CL1962.

This year’s annual meeting of ICOLD is in New Delhi, India in the week commencing 6 April. The website is here.

Planning is already well underway for the 2021 ICOLD Congress in Marseilles, France which will be held on 5-11 June 2021. The four questions selected for the Congress are:

Q104: Concrete dam design innovation and performance

Q105: Incidents and accidents concerning dams

Q106: Surveillance, instrumentation, monitoring and data acquisition

Q107: Dams and climate change

Papers for the Marseilles Congress must be submitted by 5 October 2020. As each country is limited to the number of papers that can be submitted, all papers must be submitted through the BDS. Please inform the Technical Secretary if you wish to submit a paper. As a relatively local meeting of ICOLD we are hoping for a record representation from the UK.
