Official presentation handbook
Deltares expert Dr Sanjay Giri prepared a handbook for Assessing and Managing Reservoir Sedimentation, synthesizing national and international experiences, technologies, case studies and practices related to a broad spectrum of sediment-induced problems. Last week, the handbook was officially presented with other guidelines at the International Dam Safety Conference 2019 (IDSC2019) in Bhubaneswar (Odisha).
Training conducted by Deltares
For the fourth time the DRIP states and Central Water Commission will send a group of engineers and officials to Europe for a 2-week capacity development program on Dam Safety and Water Management. The training program is conducted by Deltares in The Netherlands in collaboration with the Technical University of Valencia and the Technical University of Lausanne.
Integrated platform using Delft-FEWS
Two years ago the Karnataka Water Resources Department (KaWRD) and Deltares entered a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen bonds and exchange knowledge. As part of the collaboration a pilot project called DAMSAFE, sponsored by the Dutch Partners for Waters Program, was recently completed. The project developed an integrated platform (using Delft-FEWS) for the Bhadra dam/reservoir system that incorporates reservoir inflow and dam stability forecasting in complement with installation of an online monitoring system. Deltares expert Frans van den Berg presented the outcome of the DAMSAFE project at the IDSC2019. Currently a follow-up project is in preparation.
