In Month of Year, a series of strong storms hit Major US State.  State received over 34 inches of rainfall in 2 months, resulting in the overtopping and partial failure of Example Dam, which provides drinking water for over 3 million residents in the Central part of State.  Company responded with a team of engineering geologists who worked with 14 drill rigs, a team of industrial hygienists to monitor air quality, and a UAV pilot who photographed the damaged dam.  LIDAR mapping was also used to identify offsets from a nearby fault that trends toward Example Dam.  As part of the dam reconstruction effort, over 4 million tons of soil was transported to re-build and stabilize the aging earthen dam.  Some of this soil contained potentially hazardous concentrations of naturally occurring metals, which required special PPE for on-Site workers and area air monitoring.  This presentation will summarize the events leading to the overtopping and partial failure of Example Dam, Company’s response efforts resulting in a successful repair, as well as lessons learned (Abstract body - 300 words).
