Geosense Instruments for Dams - Worldwide

This guide shows Geosense instruments which have been installed on many dams worldwide as part of dam safety monitoring programmes. The importance of monitoring for dam safety is widely accepted. Monitoring provides the information that is needed to develop a better understanding of the on-going performance of the dam during the construction, impounding and operation phases.

Ziezoun Dam - Syria

As part of the re-building program a new design with an extensive monitoring system is currently being implemented. The new dam design includes a much deeper foundation which is intended to remove the weak strata identified as part of the reason for the failure. Geosense instrumentation was used to monitor the dam integrity by monitoring key areas.
