BDS Bibliography

The BDS bibliography of British Dams has recently been updated by Paul Tedd to include relevant papers published in the proceedings of the 2022 BDS Conference, and in recent issues of Dams and Reservoirs.  The latest version can be found here.

The bibliography is intended to provide sources of information on named dams, and therefore papers which do not mention any dam by name are generally not included.  It is a very useful resource for reservoir engineers taking on inspections of dams new to them.

As the bibliography is in a standard Excel spreadsheet, the normal Excel search functions can be used when searching for papers on a particular dam or subject (e.g. cut-off trenches). 

We would welcome feedback from the BDS members for additions, corrections and general comments – please send them to
