WEST Welcomes George Sabol, Ph.D., P.E., new Senior Technical Advisor in our Tempe, Arizona office. Dr. Sabol brings more than 40 years of experience in hydrology, hydraulics, and structure design in the Rocky Mountain West and internationally and is a recognized technical leader in flood hydrology, having prepared several manuals and guidelines for regulatory agencies. That expertise has resulted in his participation as a technical lead and reviewer in the development and use of probable maximum precipitation and probable maximum flood studies for site-specific applications and regional criteria. He has managed major dam repair and rehabilitation engineering projects for both water conservation and hydropower generation, and has served on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission board of consultants to industry.
ASDSO has released the Spencer Dam Failure Investigation Report with important lessons learned for those in the dam safety community. WEST’s Martin Teal was one of the investigative panel members.
