USACE Dam and Levee Construction and Rehabilitation Information Management
« All Projects

Project Objective

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) owns, operates, and maintains more than 700 dams and associated structures. Some of the goals of USACE’s dam program include flood risk management, navigation, water supply, hydropower, environmental stewardship, fish and wildlife conservation, and recreation. Effectively managing data from the numerous construction and rehabilitation activities is crucial for the continuous success of the program.

Geosyntec’s Scope of Services

Geosyntec is a pioneer in the field of foundation construction information and data management and have developed systems used for the construction of deep seepage barriers, grout curtains, rock anchors, and other features for constructing and rehabilitating multiple USACE dam and levee projects. Among the structures Geosyntec has worked on are Wolf Creek, Center Hill, Rough River, Bolivar, Bluestone, Folsom, and Chickamauga Dams; Herbert Hoover Dike, and the East St. Louis and Sabine Pass Levee Projects.

Our professional team has worked maintaining a geospatial database to compile all project data, visualization and analysis of verticality and overlap of excavations from positional data, and a large variety of data sources for cutoff walls, foundation grouting data, real-time automated quality control process, and generation of drawings and models.

Notable Accomplishments

The data management tools provide USACE with a long-term living document of the projects with a historical accounting of the original project construction and dam modification for use by both design engineers and operations staff for years to come.
