Dams and Levees

Since 1994, Schnabel has provided inspection, design, and construction services for more than 2,000 dam and levee projects throughout the United States and abroad. Over 100 technical professionals are dedicated solely to dam engineering, and provide a full range of related engineering and scientific services. We are widely recognized as experts in this arena, serving on the FERC Board of Consultants, USACE Type II Independent External Peer Review Panels, and leaders of industry organizations such as ASDSO and USSD.

Our commitment to clients is the hallmark of our service. We combine the resources and experience of a large firm with the responsiveness and personal attention of a small one. Awards from professional peer associations and the regulatory community for technical excellence, innovation, and sustainable design are a testament to this commitment.

As leaders in dam safety engineering, we learn from past failures and incidents and apply this knowledge to new projects. By using proven potential failure modes analysis and risk assessment methodologies, we empower dam owners with information that is essential when weighing cost-effective design solutions against asset safety, performance and resilience.
