Dam Safety 2017: We’re speaking, sponsoring and exhibiting!

Schnabel’s involvement with ASDSO’s Dam Safety 2017 conference is a win-win!  Through our support as a Platinum sponsor and exhibitor, and participation as presenters and moderators for 12 different programs, we have a terrific opportunity to both learn and share our knowledge with the best and brightest practitioners in the world of dam design and construction.
