Join Rebecca Bowman of NSPE to review the timeline and context of a cascading 3-dam failure. You’ll identify points and tasks on the timeline through which the cascading failure could have been preventable. Those “points of prevention” will be examined from the perspectives of parties involved. You’ll also explore strategies to avoid similar issues in your own work.

Throughout this 60-minute case study, you’ll identify:

  • Various contact points at which the dam failures were preventable
  • Apparent ethical issues arising during the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of the failed dams
  • Strategies to avoid making similar ethical errors
