Dam Safety Inspections

FCE works with public and private clients to provide dam safety related services, including navigating complex regulation requirements. We can successfully complete the work required to get dams certified by the state Division of Dam Safety, as well as assist in the annual inspections and certification renewals, which must be done on a specific cycle depending on the dam’s hazard classification.

FCE’s civil engineers can provide dam owners with inspections to ensure their functionality and integrity, and can provide high hazard dam owners with the required Dam Safety regulation annual report regarding the condition of the dam and have it certified by one of our staff professional civil engineers.

Other services our team can provide include:

  • PA DEP file research
  • Field inspection of dams
  • Identification and analysis of problems
  • Report preparation
  • Design of repair plans
  • Construction monitoring and resident inspections
  • Dam breach analysis
  • Emergency action plan preparation

FCE stays connected and certified to help engineer your success! Be sure to review our awards, affiliations and certifications and request a consultation about your project needs.
