Association of State Dam Safety Officials, 2016

Low-level conduits (pipes) through the base of a dam are the most common spillway for small earthen embankment structures. However, the discontinuity caused by the presence of the conduit creates numerous issues that must be addressed during the design and construction of the low-level pipe. This short course will present general design and construction-related issues that dam engineers and owners should be aware of when considering a low-level conduit in their earthen embankment structure. Seepage control, structural integrity, and material life expectancy will be discussed. In addition, the course will also discuss issues that occur after the impoundment is filled, items that need to be observed/monitored, and possible remedial actions once a deficiency is documented.
