Geospatial AI for Dam Monitoring | Rezatec Dam Monitoring System

Geospatial AI for dam monitoring

Boost safety, manage risk and direct ground resources – at scale. Use Dam Monitoring to dynamically manage the condition of all your dams.

Dam Monitoring

Remote. Scalable. Cost-effective.

Dam Monitoring empowers operators and regulators to manage the integrity and safety of your entire asset base: remotely, at scale, cost-effectively. It tracks unusual changes in movement, seepage, vegetation, landslides and downstream hazards. Its unique historical analysis and continual data refreshes highlight risk areas, so you deploy investigation and maintenance resources to the right place at the right time. In addition, Dam Monitoring aggregates, streamlines and analyses all your dam data, enabling you to ensure regulatory compliance and keep your dams safe.

Making resources more efficient

The essential new dam monitoring tool

Although new technologies and engineering approaches are enabling better monitoring of dam structures, not all monitoring solutions are the same. According to Daniel Turnbull, Dam Safety Engineer at the New South Wales-based Hunter Water, dam owners need to focus on those tools that can give the earliest possible indications of potential problems across the whole expanse of any structure and across every asset in their dam portfolio. This enables dam safety leaders to focus on data-led resource deployment while making the most of skilled staff and expertise, even when managing the biggest structures. “Dams are very large assets. That’s one of the big challenges we face, making sure that our monitoring is targeted and effective,” says Daniel.

Ultimately, geospatial AI supplements other technologies such as in-situ sensors and physical inspection observations to build a complete picture of dam risk and with capabilities that far exceed traditional dam monitoring methods.

As Daniel says: “If visual monitoring picks up that there’s a potential issue, we’re able to refer to satellite monitoring and reveal if there is something measurable to support that theory.” However, those capabilities and the tangible benefits they enable are only unlocked through a sophisticated machine learning analysis. With its unique algorithms, Rezatec is the world’s leading geospatial provider of AI analytics and offers a new and unique approach to data analysis that delivers the type of insights that have, until now, not been available. The risk assessment outcomes produced from its analytics engine are presented in an easy-to-use interactive platform that allows dam owners to see any potential issues at a glance.

“It’s not hard to see the reason for the rise of geospatial AI as a remote monitoring tool,” concludes Daniel.

Chief Engineer of the Dam Bureau , New Hampshire Dept of Environmental Services

“The technology, allows us to prioritize both repairs and instrumentation where it is needed, as it is not feasible or cost effective to instrument the full length of all high hazard dams.”

Billy Cothran

Chief Executive Officer, SJWD

SJWD use Rezatec’s Dam Monitoring technology because of its ability to provide us with a clearer picture of the changes that occur over time with our dams. Our goal is to use this technology to stay ahead of any changes that could impact the integrity of our dams.

Rezatec’s analytics are very accurate and were able to detect movements associated with historical works that had taken place, that they had no knowledge of. We are also able to see trends of movement at more frequent intervals than would be practical with traditional survey techniques, all achieved with zero risk to on-site personnel.
