Integrated management plans to reduce damage downstream of dams.
Dam failures, while comparatively rare, wreak catastrophic damage and often results in the loss of life. Anticipation, observations and management of such extraordinary events are vital for damage limitation and to save lives. ADASA offers IT tools that help foresee and manage emergency incidents at dams.
DamER assists in decisions and management of events, bringing significant benefits in terms of damage mitigation. Centralised information facilitates quick and efficient administration of emergencies, from making easy access to dam safety monitoring data to trigger public warning systems. The system allows overseeing the status of the dam, ambience parameters like rainfall and temperature, and what is happening river upstream and downstream to allow a particular emergency scenario to be declared.
Through DamER, we coalesce measurable parameters of an emergency, incorporating DamER’s readings with information from other connected platforms. Communications are automatically shared with agencies and security forces involved in incidents, reducing human error. Population warning systems for downstream residents are triggered, too, as well as updates to access routes. This helps reduce the severity of any dam failure and predict any future scenarios; traceability attributes responsibility post-event, too.
Collection of data, management of data, management of a dam’s emergency action plan and forecasting and prediction tools are all included with DamER. This Software-as-a-Solution is the most efficient way to ensure quick, safe and centralised management of emergencies in dams.
