The Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) recently released its guidelines on ‘Regulation and Practice for the Environmental Management of Dams in Australia‘.

A one day workshop is being held on Monday 20 October at the National Convention Centre in Canberra to raise awareness of a range of environmental issues raised in the guidelines and which practitioners need to consider at the various stages of planning, constructing, operating and decommissioning dams. The workshop will also present case studies on the application of the guidelines around Australia and have a panel discussion on the guidelines.

More information on the workshop can be found in the flyer; details of the workshop program can be found in the program.
