Geospatial AI for Dam Monitoring | Rezatec Dam Monitoring System

Geospatial AI for Dam Monitoring

Reduce the risk of catastrophic dam failure and drive large-scale operational efficiencies. Use Dam Monitoring to dynamically manage the condition and safety of your entire portfolio.

Dam Monitoring

Remote. Scalable. Cost-effective.

Dam Monitoring empowers operators to dynamically manage the integrity and safety of your entire asset base: remotely, at scale, cost-effectively. It tracks unusual changes in ground motion, vegetation and moisture. And it detects urban development changes across the flood plain. Dam Monitoring fuses multiple data feeds with advanced AI. It incorporates satellite data to provide retrospective analysis and regular updates which build a unique picture over time. Access our interactive platform for frequent, accurate insights and alerts on anomalous activity, without the need for site inspections.

Dynamic dam safety and condition management

Filling in the data gaps with dam monitoring

For dam operators and regulators, managing aging assets is the day-to-day reality of business. Most dams were built decades ago and many are reaching the end of their initial design life. Almost three quarters of the more than 90,000 dams located in the US, for instance, will be more than 50 years old within the next five years.

Dams and embankments are different from many other classes of aging industrial asset though. Given the obvious and far-reaching consequences associated with dam failure and the potential release of millions of tonnes of water, failure of these structures is without doubt an extreme risk event. It’s not surprising that owners and operators of dams and embankment structures are increasingly focused on dam safety and effective risk assessment as part of a thorough mitigation strategy.

The reality is that operational budgets are increasingly constrained across many asset classes. This puts pressure on the owners who need to maintain the integrity of every dam and hydraulic structure and the regulators who need to inspect them, but without massive increases in costs.

Rezatec’s Dam Monitoring product remotely and cost-effectively tracks the condition of dams, and new urban developments in their inundation zones – at scale. It combines satellite with additional data feeds, and fuses this data with advanced AI algorithms. Its insights determine unusual millimetric changes in terrain motion, vegetation growth and moisture, and they determine urban change risks in the flood plain.

What people say

Take a look at what our customers, partners and industry leaders are saying

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.

Daniel Turnball

Dams Safety Engineer, Hunter Water

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.
